If you are feeding your pet anything other than table scraps, you've likely come across Big Heart Pet Brands. Formerly Del Monte Corporation, the company is the leading provider of branded pet food and snacks in the US; its portfolio includes Milk-Bone, Meow Mix, Natural Balance, Kibbles 'n Bits, Gravy Train, and Snausages, among others. Its products are available through grocery stores, club stores, mass merchandisers, specialty pet stores, and supercenters primarily in the US. In early 2014 the company sold its canned fruit, vegetables, and broths business and changed its name from Del Monte to Big Heart Pet Brands. In early 2015 it was acquired by The J. M. Smucker Company .
