Located in southeast Missouri, Bloomfield is a small town with a rich history—and we’ve been proud to call Bloomfield home to one of our litter factories since 1976. This factory was the first to produce Lightweight® litter, a product that weighs half the amount of conventional litter, which has revolutionized the category within the pet care industry. Unique to this factory is an overhead bridge that allows full pallets of finished products to be conveyed to the distribution center just north of the factory. This innovation, in conjunction with others, played a considerable role in Nestlé Purina earning the Malcolm Baldrige Award, the highest level of national recognition for performance excellence that a U.S. organization can receive.
In 2020, our Bloomfield factory underwent a 110,000-square-foot expansion in processing and packaging. This 115-million-dollar investment allowed Nestlé Purina to meet the growing demand from cat owners. With short commutes to St. Louis, Kansas City, and the Lake of the Ozarks—you can enjoy daytrips to popular attractions nearby or take pride in the great schools, local businesses, and tight-knit community Bloomfield has to offer.
