Our soft-moist pet food factory in Zanesville is favorably located along the banks of the Muskingum River in scenic east-central Ohio halfway between Columbus and Wheeling, West Virginia. Originally under the ownership of BENCO Pet Foods, this 100-year-old facility was acquired by Purina in 1987 and has since evolved as we've innovated and renovated our portfolio of products, processes and technical equipment. Zanesville is the only Nestlé Purina location that produces every Moist & Meaty and Alpo® Meal Helper product for all of the United States and Canada. We produce 21,800 tons annually and ship approximately 3,120 truckloads each year.
