We are pleased to present the Purina in Society Report 2020, the third progress report on our Purina in Society Commitments, in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).

We believe the pet-human bond can be a positive force for change within society. Launched in 2019, the BetterWithPets Prize supports entrepreneurs harnessing the power of the bond to help communities and is a fundamental part of our commitment to help 1,000,000 people in vulnerable situations improve their health and wellbeing. 
We are a company with nutrition at it´s heart and have a history of pioneering nutritional innovations to help cats and dogs live healthy, long lives. We are also huge advocates for harnessing the power of the pet-human bond for good to help people and pets live richer and stronger lives together, because of our fundamental believe that we are better with pets.

Our R&D

Purina Research and Development (R&D) network is composed of over 500 scientists, represents a breadth of disciplines (veterinarians, nutritionists, animal behaviourists, microbiologists, nutritional biochemists and immunologists) and is a vital part of the wider Nestlé R&D Network, which comprises a team of more than 5,000 people.

Our R&D network is passionately driven by unleashing the power of nutrition to help all pets live better, longer lives. We believe in a world where pets thrive longer and even the most challenging health issues can be effectively managed through nutrition. Driven by this vision and an unwavering passion for pets, our R&D network applies unrivalled scientific expertise in pet nutrition, physiology and behaviour to make new discoveries and push boundaries, creating real nutritional solutions that make the difference.

The Purina Institute

In 2018 we launched the Purina Institute, the global voice of Purina’s science. Representing a diverse team of more than 500 scientists and pet care experts around the world, the Purina Institute will share Purina’s ground-breaking research and the latest scientific findings in pet nutrition. The Purina Institute seeks to elevate the topic of pet nutrition with veterinarians to drive conversations with pet owners about the important role that scientifically-based nutrition plays in the overall health of their pets.
