James Spratt developed and manufactured the first commercial pet food in the UK around 1860. After seeing dogs being fed leftover biscuits from a ship, Spratt formulated the first dog biscuit: a mix of wheat meals, vegetables, beetroot and beef blood. His business venture was a success, meeting a new market demand and selling to the English fine gentry for their sporting dogs. A British public company took over Spratt’s formula and production began at a U.S. operation in about 1890.
