A subsidiary of Colgate Palmolive Company, Hill’s products accounted for 14 percent of the parent company’s total worldwide net sales in 2015. Organic sales in Hills Pet Nutrition enlarged by 6 percent in 2015, with the United States and Taiwan leading volume gains.

This marks some recovery in the US market, as domestic sales had deteriorated in 2014. Colgate-Palmolive reports the worldwide 2015 increase in organic sales was driven primarily by unrelenting growth in the Prescription Diet brand, as well as Hill’s Pet Company Advanced Nutrition and Naturals categories. Although organic sales increased, the company attributed a fall in revenue to negative foreign exchange rates.
