The excellent benefits package includes BUPA, staff allowance and a maximum of 30 days’ holiday after a time-served period per year.


At ROYAL CANIN, everything we do is for the dog and the cat.  We don’t do consumer surveys or market research.  Instead, our innovations are based solely on the animals’ needs and scientific advances.  Our diets provide precise nutritional solutions to pets’ needs.  Each of our products is based on our extensive knowledge of cats and dogs.  We’re constantly expanding and improving on this knowledge in order to keep providing pets with food that meets their exact dietary requirements.
