Pet Food

Pet food varieties proliferate as pet ownership grows

Pet parents are dedicated to their animal companions, as illustrated by the rise of specialty pet foods and the overall market increase for pet foods and treats, expected to post a 5.8% CAGR for the next few years. Quality also partners with convenience as consumers look to customized blends and mixes designed for specialized diets, tailored meal plans, or healthy treats. Among those customized products, organic and vegan pet food varieties continue to rise in popularity, topping $22 billion in 2020. This is attributed mainly to Millennials, the largest segment of pet owners, mimicking their own personal eating habits.
