This factory was the first to produce Lightweight litter, which has revolutionized the category within the pet care industry - a product that weighs half the amount of conventional litter. Unique to this factory is an overhead bridge that allows full pallets of finished products to be conveyed to the distribution warehouse just north of the factory. This innovation, in conjunction with various others, played a meaningful role in Nestl Purina earning the Malcolm Baldrige Award in manufacturing.

This is a $115 million investment, allowing Nestl Purina to meet the growing demand from cat owners.
