Veterinarian Jean Cathary founded Royal Canin in France in 1967. Dr. Cathary had the vision of a pet food company grounded in science; a company based on the principles of acquiring knowledge about pets, maintaining respect for them at all times and, most importantly, creating advanced cat and dog food made to satisfy the needs of the pet – not the desires of the pet owner. Today the Royal Canin corporation has more than 6000 associates aroung the world and our diets are sold in more than 90 countries. Royal Canin Finland Oy is an independent subsidiary of the French parent company and has 29 associates. Royal Canin diets provide precise nutritional solutions to cat’s and dog's needs. Each of our products is based on our extensive knowledge of cats and dogs, gained through years of studies at our own centre, partnerships with leading veterinary schools and universities, and continued input from veterinarians and breeders worldwide. We’re constantly expanding and improving on this knowledge in order to keep providing cats and dogs with food that meets their exact dietary requirements.
