Alpo Pet Food is another successful sub-brand of Nestlé Purina Petcare, which is a subsidiary of Nestlé. Offered as a soft food, as well as dry kibble, Alpo is considered an American brand of dog food that Nestlé has manufactured and marketed since 1995 when it acquired the brand from Grand Metropolitan.
Alpo is not a brand established by Nestlé at its origins, but it has become representative for the company’s dedication to excellence in all aspects of the quality of their products. Allen Products Company initially produced Alpo in 1936 and the name itself is an abbreviation of that name. Allen Products was founded by Robert F. Hunsicker in Allentown, Pennsylvania. This makes ALPO an original American brand. The company was sold successively throughout the years to Liggett & Myers Tobacco Company, Grand Metropolitan, and ultimately Nestlé SA. Alpo Petfoods Inc. as a result of the merger of Nestlé Friskies with Ralston Purina in 2001 and it is now operated by Nestlé Purina Petcare Company.
Alpo is known mostly as dog soft food that comes either packaged or canned, but pet owners can also find it as dry kibbles if they wish. It remains one of the most trusted dog food brands throughout its 75 years of history. Alpo is recognized globally, but particularly in the United States, for its high quality protein and meaty taste. Any dog lights up with excitement whether you offer it crunchy dry food, tasty treats, or delicious wet food. Alpo is sold as Purina Alpo dog food.
