Aside from its 300 days of annual sunshine, breathtaking scenery and remaining a mecca for some of the country's best brews, Denver has consistently ranked in the 'Top 10 pet-loving cities' and 'Top 5 dog-friendly cities' year over year. Purina has a proud presence in this mile-high city, having been in operation since 1930. Its first 42 years in operation were primarily to produce livestock feed until the plant transitioned into a pet food-only manufacturer in 1972. Since then, the location became the first-ever pet food factory to utilize solar energy. To date, we're proud to sustainably produce 260,134 tons annually of Dog Chow, Cat Chow, Kit n Kaboodle, Alpo, Beneful, Purina ONE Beyond, Purina ONE and Pro Plan.
