In addition to Iams and Eukanuba, Mars is also reported to be purchasing Natura from Proctor & Gamble.  Natura has many sub-brands, including EVO, Innova, California Natural, Healthwise, Mother Nature and Karma.

Like Proctor & Gamble, Mars is a massive corporation, and at the end of the day profit is the main goal. In addition to the pet product brands they already own, Mars also owns quite a few candy, (human) food, and beverage brands. We can always hope that the upcoming change of ownership would improve these newly purchased product lines, but I'd guess that to be very unlikely. Any changes going forward would most certainly be for the benefit of Mars' bottom line....which often doesn't bode well for the consumers.

reason why I said that because I haven't seen Mars do cruelty or have allot of recalls not saying they ain't who knows I haven't heard any cruelty with Mars maybe there is I don't know but if there isn't I hope they get iams and eukanuba away from the cruelty part etc.

and doing this who owns what is fun XD

Do you want to know who owns the brands or who manufacturers the brands? There is a difference. There are only so many pet food manufacturing plants, so one plant may make many brands.

l know it's a bit off topic (but interesting), but Mars also owns the Banfield Pet Clinics.

Ya, who manufactures, equally important, Diamond (popular for many recalls) for eg, manufactures many brands like
Natural Balance
Taste of the Wild
Nutragold
Chicken Soup
Diamond Naturals
Premium Edge

and what else? I'm interested to know.

I won't buy anything made by Diamond or Evangers anymore. I don't have my own personal list with me right now, but this link from Truth About Pet Food should give you a lot of them: http://truthaboutpetfood.com/who-makes-what-in-pet-food. The list is two years old. Susan Thixton hopes to update it soon. Also, if you're interested in a special list that Susan compiles, you have to pay for it. Here's more info: http://truthaboutpetfood.com/the-2014-list

Here's another manufacturer list on felinecrf.org: http://www.felinecrf.org/catfood_manufacturers_usa.htm

Thanks for the link, I didn't manage to find these links while googling. I try not to buy food made by Diamond/Mars/P&G, but if my kitty will only eat those brands made by them or if I can only afford those, then I will have no choice but to buy them, thank goodness that isn't the case as yet.
