Steamboat on river in Clinton, IA

Clinton is the easternmost city in Iowa and tucked along the Mississippi river – a place where more than a dozen other Fortune 500 companies have built a strong presence. We’ve been able to make it a home to one of our dry pet food/treats facilities since 1969 as a producer brands you know and pets love like Purina Beggin® and Purina One®. Clinton has become a hub for innovation and design, testing, and launching new products. In the last 50 years, more than 190 products have been produced in Clinton, and the factory is also the sole producer of Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets dry pet food.
