At Almo Nature, we do things differently, keeping in mind the true nature of dogs and cats, and the environment they live in.
For us, seeing things from their point of view means:
| Communicating the origin of the ingredients we use for our pet food with transparency;
| Developing concrete solidarity projects that respect cats, dogs and biodiversity.
Founded in 2000 thanks to the intuition and experience of Pier Giovanni Capellino, a long-time entrepreneur in the field, Almo Nature was the first company in the world to introduce cat and dog food made with %100 HFC ingredients, that is, originally intended for human consumption according to Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009 Article 10 (a)
Today, the company continues to develop high-quality products such as aLternative, the dog and cat kibble (dry food) made with fresh meat as its first (main) ingredient. Another Almo Nature innovation, CatLitter, a completely natural cat litter, free of any chemical additives, has also recently been launched.
Throughout its 17-year history, Almo Nature has consistently set new industry standards with its range of innovative products made using only premium quality ingredients.
Today, Almo Nature has grown into a true “pocket-sized multinational” with its headquarters in Genoa, Italy and subsidiaries in Germany, Switzerland, Great Britain, France, the Netherlands, Canada, United States and China.
Our growth goes hand in hand with the development of projects supporting cats and dogs in need and defending biodiversity: Under the umbrella of aLmore
‘aLmore’ is our commitment to animals and nature
TODAY we act at where we can show our aim with concrete action and build a bigger community around our values through our actions in the field with our current projects.
A pet is for life
| Love Food
| AdoptMe – Responsible Adoption
Farmers & Predators
| Reduce the Conflict
We help relieve the burden on animal rescue centres in Europe by donating a budget of 1 million meals each year for cats and dogs in emergency.
Our Love Food solidarity projects, which began in Italy, have now expanded to support rescue centres in Germany and France. And we intend to expand to other European countries.
AdoptMe is a European project to help dogs and cats in shelters find their forever homes.
The aim is to get more cats and dogs out of the shelters through adoption and encouraging the public to make more responsible choices when taking on a cat or dog. The project has already launched in Italy-Germany and France and will gradually expand throughout Europe.
Reduce the Conflict
We act to reduce the conflict between the farmers and wolves:
To support farmers, we provide dog food for livestock guard dogs as a viable choice over more inhumane predator management methods.
Complementary to these two areas, we have the DbD project; a database of dogs who donate blood in Italy:
Dog Blood Donor
Dog Blood Donors is a database of dogs that donate blood; the database is funded by Almo Nature with the patronage of the National Association of Italian Veterinarians (ANMVI) and the National Federation of Italian Veterinarians Orders (FNOVI).
