Lily’s Kitchen has been acquired by Purina PetCare, one of the world’s leading pet care companies. The company, founded by from Henrietta Morrison, will continue to operate as a standalone entity run by all the same people in its own office.
David Milner, chief executive of Lily’s Kitchen, said that the business will continue to make our food with the same producers, and it will be delivered to you by the same delivery folk.
He added: “The exciting change that you might notice in the future is that with Purina’s support, your favourite recipes become much easier to find in your local shops and all around the world.”
Ms Morrison created Lily’s Kitchen in the belief pets deserved better, more natural food that would make them healthier.
She said: “I was inspired to do this by my own dog, Lily, who was ill and is happily now nearly 17 years old. I’m proud we have been able to bring the business this far and by working with Purina we will accelerate Lily’s Kitchen becoming truly global so that pet owners worldwide can have access to really healthy, natural pet food.
“I have always believed passionately in growing the business by doing the right thing by our people, our customers and the planet. We have created a brand that people and their pets really love. I’m so proud of what we have achieved and know the brand will be taken good care of in its next chapter.”
