Why We Are Different
At Royal Canin, we live by the conviction that pets are not people; they are unique animals with unique nutritional needs that are distinctly different from our own. Through extensive research, we have identified these needs and created a complete line of premium Health Nutrition specifically formulated for cats and dogs – large or small, young or old, purebred or mixed breed. Because we know that only by feeding the best quality nutrition can we truly help pets stay as healthy and beautiful as possible.
In the world of pet nutrition, there are a lot of companies creating formulas that appeal to pet owners – because ultimately pet owners are the ones who buy pet food. Royal Canin isn’t like a lot of pet food companies. Our mission is different.
At Royal Canin, we make the most precise and effective nutrition for cats and dogs based on size, age, lifestyle, breed and to address specific needs. To do this, we’ve accumulated vast knowledge about pets that only extensive research, scientific study and tireless dialogue with pet professionals, veterinarians and owners can provide. But even that isn’t enough.
In order to create pet Health Nutrition that makes a difference for cats and dogs, we maintain respect for their fundamental animal nature and unique nutritional needs. At all times and in all ways, pets are at the center of everything we do.
Royal Canin is home to many passionate pet owners, and like you, we take the health of our pets very seriously. We are committed to innovations in Health Nutrition and to improving the lives of the cats and dogs we serve.
Our quality and food safety systems are state-of-the-art and we will continue to invest heavily in new technology to ensure they remain that way.
- We put our suppliers through a rigorous selection process that doesn’t end with our first purchase – we test every load delivered to our plants to ensure the safety and quality of the ingredients we use to make food for cats and dogs.
- We perform thousands of quality checks every month, at every plant, including tests for Salmonella, melamine and mycotoxins.
- We manufacture every diet we sell, in plants that we own, and our plants are ISO 9001:2008 certified for Quality Management and ISO 2000 certified for Food Safety.
- We perform tests on all finished products before they are shipped to our customers.
You can feel confident that all ROYAL CANIN® cat and dog food, available in veterinary hospitals and in pet specialty retailers nationwide, is safe for your pets to enjoy. If you have any questions about our quality standards, please contact us.
