Almo Nature produces high quality cat and dog food, but also has another very important role.
In 2018, the owners, Lorenzo and Pier Giovanni Capellino, donated the company to Fondazione Capellino, a foundation that protects cats, dogs and nature through various projects.
Now, all of Almo Nature’s profits are used to fund the foundation’s projects—which means that you directly support these projects whenever you buy Almo Nature products!
Almo Nature, which is investing to become a company with zero impact on biodiversity by 2030, also operates the Companion Animal For Life project, which promotes cat and dog adoption and responsible ownership.
By taking part in this unique business model known as “Restorative Economy,” Almo Nature sets itself apart on the world stage as a “company for benefit.”

Quality & Safety
High quality meat and fish is essential for healthy nutrition in cats and dogs, which is why it is the basis of our cat and dog food.
Our product lines are divided into two segments: HQS (High Quality Sourced) and Daily.
Both segments use only high quality ingredients.Read more Hide
The HQS segment is made with meat or fish that “originally were fit for human consumption” and that are now used for pet food only.
The Daily segment is made with tuna red meat, which maintains HQS quality standards, but is not a part of the fish commonly eaten by humans.
From our team of veterinarians, technicians and nutritionists to our production and factory workers, we work hard every day to ensure that our cat and dog food is consistent with our values and quality assurance.Read more Hide
We adhere to precise protocols , both internal and required by law, to guarantee food quality up to the moment it reaches your companion’s food bowl—from the selection of raw materials to the preparation and conservation of products.

Almo Nature has, since its founding, received a characteristic thrust from its shareholder, aimed also at the achievement of non-financial objectives through the undertaking of specific animal and biodiversity protection projects.
With the donation of Almo Nature’s capital ownership to the Foundation by Lorenzo and Pier Giovanni Capellino, the fulfillment of non-financial objectives has received an important gain in momentum.
The first action effected by the new shareholder consisted in the adoption of a Statute that was in line with the ethical principles of the Foundation, determining the evolution of the company from SpA to Benefit SpA, also extending, subject to the laws of each country, to foreign subsidiaries. Then work began on the operating structure, on the new positioning of the brand symbolized by the replacement of “pet food+aLmore” with “owned by the animals”, and now including Almo Nature within the reintegration economy model by entrusting the metric research institute “Cdc Biodiversité” with the task of drawing up specifications and a progressive path towards Almo Nature having a zero impact on biodiversity by 2030.
Annual Report 2019
On June 10th, 2019, the Revenue Agency responded positively to Fondazione Capellino regarding the request for a referral made in November 2018 regarding the correct and certain tax framework of the enterprise. On 28th June 2019, the deed of donation was signed by Pier Giovanni and Lorenzo Capellino with retroactive effect on the profits accrued from 1st January 2018 so that the first dividend could be paid to the Foundation as early as July 2019. Almo Nature Benefit SpA is 100% owned by Fondazione Capellino, an independent and non-profit philanthropic institution. Reserve provisions are a choice resulting from the investment objectives necessary to maintain and develop the company over the decade and shared with the Foundation, sole shareholder since 28th June 2019. The main objective of the 2019 activity was to align the company and its foreign subsidiaries on the values and positioning of the Foundation, summarised both in the new statutes and in the new organisation chart, both in the work processes that will become progressively recognizable also from the outside. Almo Nature has become one of the 5 projects of Fondazione Capellino with the aim of producing quality cat and dog food and, through the profits made, supporting all the Foundation’s projects.
How This Project Is Funded
The profits generated from sales of Almo Nature products (less expenses, investments and taxes) are used to finance the projects of Fondazione Capellino, whose sole purpose is to implement and support initiatives to protect our common home, planet Earth, internalizing and translating the idea of respect for life in all of its forms.
