As a leading pet food manufacturer, and one of the largest manufacturers in Oklahoma we carry on the legacy of our Founder who led us to reshape the larger Pet Care Category. Over 100 years in existence, we’ve grown our passionate Purina Family as we’ve grown the breadth of our business. Nestle Purina has a large presence in Oklahoma City (OKC) with one of our dry pet food factories located just 10 miles outside of downtown in Edmond. Having served as a production facility for many years in this area as producers of Dog Chow®, Puppy Chow®, Beneful® and Purina ONE® brands, we have left a big paw print on this charming western city.
