This innovation, in conjunction with various others, played a considerable role in Nestlé Purina earning the Malcolm Baldridge Award.  Located in south central Missouri the area calls to the outdoors person that enjoys hunting, fishing, hiking, boating, etc.  The Ozark Mountains and lakes are just stone’s throw away.
