See the world from their perspective
Our animal companions love and support us unconditionally. We want to reciprocate their loyalty, by understanding their needs and treating them with respect.
Here you’ll find out that
was founded to change the way we feed our companion animals
The quality of pet food ingredients is crucial, not unlike our own food. This was the pivotal idea for Pier Giovanni Capellino, Almo Nature’s founder.
He was looking at his dogs as they were devouring a quality piece of meat. PG saw that they were happier and more energetic, an entirely different reaction from when he fed them with the industrial pet food that was available at the time.
There and then, he decided to find a way to develop pet food that’s created with the same attention and ingredients as human food, by selecting premium ingredients like he would at the butcher’s for himself. Almo Nature products offer convenience and are high in quality, making it the perfect solution for people with hectic lifestyles who value their animal companion’s needs.
SEE THE WORLD FROM THEIR PERSPECTIVE
I am able to “see through their eyes” thanks to my cats, Shabbat and Chocolat, and my dogs, Shang, Dottor Salento and Yanga. Dottor Salento, in particular, is always by my side. He accompanies me everywhere. He is the one who inspired our philosophy, and then our products, giving us feedback through his attitude and gestures. Really, he was the brains, I just gave a voice to his ideas.
Almo Nature was the first company in the world to create HQS food for animals
We have challenged ourselves to create a completely unprecedented kind of pet food — a product to exceed expectations of owners and their animal companions, promising surprising superiority in terms of taste and quality.
This is how we introduced a line of wet pet food that consists entirely of ingredients originally fit for human consumption (HQS), now used in our food for cats and dogs.
The highest quality of wet food for animals on the market
Simply cooked in broth or using the in-pouch “bain-marie” method, ideal for hydration
The animals used for their meat in our recipes are bred with the utmost respect for their well-being
WITH RESPECT FOR THEIR NATURE
The first step in treating animals differently is to take care of their health and emotional state. We select the best ingredients to meet their needs in terms of essential nutrients, required energy and taste.
Almo Nature got ahead of the game by creating the most natural cat litter
Absorbent and clean
Safe, natural and non-toxic
No chemical components. None at all.
OUR STORY OF COMPASSION
We started out with food donations, but we soon realised that we needed to find long-term solutions if we wanted to help solve the problem of abandoned animals and strays. We needed to start at the root of the problem, not only treat the cause. This is when we decided to support adoptions and drive legislative changes to make a real difference.
Almo Nature funded the creation of a nationwide blood donation database for dogs
Almo Nature launched a project to help humans and wildlife live peacefully alongside each other
GIVING BACK EFFICIENTLY
Thanks to the profits of Almo Nature product sales, of which 100% is given to the foundation, we can build sustainable ecosystems that don’t depend on external donations. Our approach is focused on solutions that work and evolve as time progresses, without any outside help. It’s not about a one-time effort, it’s about giving back efficiently.
Almo Nature is now owned by the animals
Pier Giovanni Capellino, the founder of Almo Nature, decided to reserve 100% of the company’s profit and use it to fund projects helping cats, dogs, and biodiversity.
Since January 1, 2018, The Capellino Foundation is fully in charge of developing and funding the projects. All company profits serve the foundation’s purpose of solidarity with animals and nature, meaning that Almo Nature is owned by the animals.
A dual entity
Almo Nature became a for-benefit company during the first half of 2019. The company will continue to pay taxes just like any other company, but the statutes will include objectives of public interest. This type of business structure allows the company to form a dual entity with the Capellino Foundation. Almo Nature will continue to produce high quality food for cats and dogs as well as all marketing/communication campaigns.
100% of profits (dividents) are allocated to
The Foundation solely uses its funds for projects that help to protect dogs, cats, and biodiversity, on a local and international scale. Fondazione Capellino is responsible for managing the projects (Companion Animal For Life, Humans & Wildlife and Regenerating Villa Fortuna).
