Nestlé Purina PetCare, a pet food company offering nutritional pet food options, looks to purchase Red Collar Pet Foods‘ Miami, Okla. pet treats factory from Arbor Investments, with anticipated closing in March 2023.

Purina has worked with the Red Collar team since 2022 to co-manufacture several soft-chew pet treats under its Purina treats portfolio and Zuke’s brands. The addition of the Oklahoma factory to Purina’s North American production footprint will mark the 22nd Purina-owned and operated facility nationwide and looks to expand the company’s capabilities for dog and cat treat production.

“Continued innovation and expanded production capabilities are critical to help drive future growth in our treats business,” comments Andrea Faccio, chief growth officer at Purina. “The Red Collar team has the expertise to add tremendous value to Purina as we pursue new opportunities to feed and treat dogs and cats.”
