Where do opportunities for growth and innovation lie in the Pet Food Market?
Nature vs science
Pet humanization fuels the convergence of two powerful dynamics: the tendency of pet owners to apply their own dietary preferences to their pets and veterinary science.
The feline revolution
More and better products and services for cats, and more marketing attention, will encourage cat owners to invest heavily in the health and happiness of their pets.
Although ethical and environmental claims may have low visibility in pet food, awareness and interest in this space is set to grow, with more pet owners becoming interested in green choices.
