Purina have been around a long time. Their history is summed up on their website as follows:
'In December 2001, Nestlé S. A. completed the acquisition of the Ralston Purina Company and began the process of integrating their Friskies Petcare business with Ralston Purina to create the world's leading petcare company, Nestlé Purina PetCare.
'Friskies had over 70 years of pet care experience, about the same as Ralston Purina, and now that wealth of knowledge, all based around understanding and meeting the needs of pets and their owners, is being combined to enhance pet nutrition and continue to provide the finest quality pet foods.'
There is a wide range of products for all ages of dog from puppy to senior, and these days they are preserved using natural antioxidants, and do not contain colourings.
Purina are huge suppliers of Soya, and therefore it's not a surprise to find that it crops up in their products, along with wheat, and un-named animal fat which may put some off who are looking for a natural hypo-allergenic product.
Expect to pay £39 for a 14kg sack of their standard recipe, and £35 for 10kg of the Duo Delice. So they are not cheap recipes when compared with many brands that are free of wheat and soya.
Based not just on quality of ingredients, but if it seems to offer value for money!
