Winalot is a popular brand of dog food sold by Spillers. The name was first used in 1927 for dog biscuits. They were initially marketed as a food for racing greyhounds, but soon gained popularity with pet-owners and became a brand leader in the 1930s.
In 1978, Spillers acquired Modern Maid Food Products Inc of Garden City, NJ (NYSE:MMF).
In the late 1990s, following a BSE crisis in the United Kingdom, Dalgety entered into a series of disposals and sold Spillers flour milling operations to Kerry Group plc in 1997 and its pet foods business to Nestlé in 1997.
The Spillers business was expanded by Nestlé, and the Winalot brand was extended to include a range of dry and tinned dogfoods and snacks.
