In 1837 a small trading company was
founded in the idyllic village of Heiligenrode, near
Bremen, Germany. Stemming from a familial love of and
interest in nature and animals, this company grew from
generation to generation to become one of the first
major pet food manufacturers in Germany…the company we
now call Vitakraft.
High quality coupled with an innovative
and wide range of products adapted to the specific
dietary needs of household pets quickly opened the
market in Germany, throughout Europe, and overseas.
Today, 175 years later, Vitakraft is a dynamic group of
companies, operating successfully in Europe, North and
South America and Asia. Skilled and committed staff from
more than 20 countries work for the well-being of pets,
and thus help to develop the trust that the Vitakraft
brand inspires in millions of pet owners worldwide.
It is this enduring passion for animals
and commitment to their well being that continues to
shape our company style and objectives.
