POSITION SUMMARY:

For thirty years, we’ve been proud to call St. Joseph, Missouri home. Located an hour north of Kansas City, the community of 77,000 people is packed with character, rich history, and nationally acclaimed quality of life—just like Nestlé Purina is. The city was recognized with the All-America City Award, given to communities with citizens who work together to pinpoint and address community-wide challenges and achieve exceptional results. Carrying forward that spirit, since 1985, our wet dog and cat food factory in St. Joseph has provided employment and a special home for many of our associates who work passionately each day to annually produce millions of cases of our flagship brands: Fancy Feast® and Beneful® Prepared Meals. Our associates’ work goes far beyond the bag and the can. They are very passionate about their support for the United Way and United Cerebral Palsy foundations, raising $750,000 over the past five years.
