Ainsworth Pet Nutrition® was born from the dedication to companion animals our founder George Ainsworth Lang started more than 75 years ago. His commitment to providing dogs and cats with the safest, highest quality foods was unwavering. And, today, we are proud to continue to uphold his high standards.
While we have evolved from a small regional business to a multi-tiered North American organization that now makes a wide variety of pet food and snacks, we are proud to say the Lang family continues to lead our business. And because it’s our name on every bag, we will work diligently to ensure that your furry family members and ours get nothing but the best of everything.
While Ainsworth Pet Nutrition is a reflection of our company’s expanding focus to meet the ever-changing needs of today’s pet parents one thing will always remain the same — our sole focus will always be on pets. In fact, pet food, pet treats and pet products are all we make. And all we will ever make. And our promise is to always make the healthiest and safest pet foods and treats — for your pets and ours.
Many of you may not be aware that Ainsworth Pet Nutrition has a sister company in the Joplin, Missouri area called Hampshire Pet Products. While plant facilities were not significantly affected by the recent tornado, a number of Ainsworth Pet Nutrition families have been directly impacted by the loss of property and, in some cases, loss of their primary residence. The devastation in the Joplin community has been well documented in the news. It is difficult to comprehend the extent of the impact on property and families in the Joplin community.
To support these families in their efforts to rebuild, Ainsworth will be matching employee donations. However the greater need in the entire Joplin community that affects our families and so many others are also of critical importance to us.
Efforts to help these people and pets are being managed by the local disaster relief efforts of the American Red Cross and the ASPCA, working in conjunction with the Missouri Humane Society. We encourage you to donate what you can to help people and their beloved pet family members in this time of need:
Thank you in advance for your support in this time of need for Ainsworth families and their pets.
Sean Lang, CEO
