Here at Purina PetCare, we believe life is better with pets – and that people and pets are better together. Many of us are pet owners too so we know first-hand what a huge role pets can play in people’s lives.
Pets are loving companions and part of our families, so it’s really important that they not only enjoy the food we give them, but that it does them good. Our foods aren’t just tasty, they’re complete and well-balanced meals that keep cats and dogs of all ages happy, healthy and content. Bright eyes, a shiny coat and a playful personality are the telltale signs of any healthy pet, and it all starts with a proper diet.
We’re proud to make some of the UK’s most popular and trusted pet food brands such as Felix, Gourmet, Winalot, Bakers, Purina ONE and Pro Plan. We know that a one-size-fits-all approach to food is not right for every pet. That’s why we’ve created a wide range of products tailored for all different needs of cats and dogs. With over 125 years’ experience behind us, we have seen how proper feeding can actually help extend a pet’s healthy years. From dental health to cognitive health we are committed to creating nutritious foods which are good for health, wellbeing and longevity. And with our 500 strong global team of Purina nutritionists, scientists, vets and animal behaviourists, we are on a mission to raise the bar for pet nutrition even higher.

Whitings LLP is proud to support the Ely SME Business Awards
Among the most familiar and respected names in the Ely business circles, Whitings was founded in 1928 by Walter Whiting, who spotted an opportunity to meet the demands of the area’s thriving farming communities. Nearly 100 years on and this independent firm of chartered accountants is still firmly rooted in East Anglia, with 12 partners and nearly 150 staff in 8 key market town locations.
“We’re delighted to be involved with the Ely SME Business Awards,” says partner Ian Piper. “Everyone is working hard to bounce back after Brexit, COVID and the cost of living crisis. Across Fenland we have some long-established businesses plus a raft of exciting entrepreneurial start-ups and they are meeting these new challenges as they arise.”
Nick Edgley, private client tax partner at the Ely office, specialises in looking after the firm’s personal tax and trust clients. “We offer both compliance and tax planning services. We are not just form fillers – always looking to identity tax planning opportunities that can make all the difference to spendable income levels as a standard part of our service.”
The Ely office of Whitings is based in modern offices, in the thriving Angel Drove business park. Partners Nick, Ian, and Amanda Newman head up a team of around 30 professional and administrative staff, who look after approximately 1,000 business, personal and not for profit clients. As well as looking after clients’ accounting and tax requirements, they also specialise in outsourced payroll, probate and wealth management services.
