- The emergence of regional brands focusing on natural – whether canned or frozen – wet dog food highlights dog owners’ concerns about how healthy processed food is for their pets. While there is, still, a large proportion of Brazilians who feed their dogs with human food scraps, a niche group of higher-income consumers is already migrating from premium and super premium processed food to natural products, properly prepared for pets – preservatives-free, with no artificial spices and balanced in accordance with veterinary surgeons’ indications. Especially regarding pets that have any kind of food restriction, brands such as La Pet Cuisine, for example, that prepare natural frozen food as prescribed by veterinary surgeons, are gaining increasing importance within the industry. Although frozen food is perceived as a more healthy option, distribution should be a challenge. This explains why other brands are investing in canned natural food, such as Pet Delicia, for example. This trend is, however, seen much more in major urban centres such as São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, and does not as yet represent the preference of the whole country.
- Mars Brasil Alimentos continue to hold first position in terms of value sales within dog food in 2014, registering a 23% value share, closely followed by Nestlé Brasil with 21%. Both brands continued to hold leading positions because of high brand awareness among consumers, constant investments in new products and expansion of their portfolios. Pedigree, for example, has a whole product line composed of treats, dry and wet dog food, and frequent promotion via advertising campaigns on TV supporting sales, as well as advertising material at points of sale.
- As a consequence of the uncertain economic situation in the country, economy dry dog food is expected to register the highest growth in 2015, of 10% in current terms and 4% in volume terms. As premium dry dog food is mainly purchased by higher-income consumers, due to being more expensive, such consumers are expected to be less affected by the economic situation in the short term. Brand loyalty for premium brands is also an important factor to consider, which indicates that the consumption of such products is not expected to be drastically affected. For mid-priced brands, however, the situation is different: the purchasing decision is much more based on prices rather than quality, brand name and/or benefits. A downgrade to economy brands is, therefore, expected to happen, especially in 2015. The entrance of new consumers in this category, migrating from scraps to processed products, is also expected to slowdown as prices are set to be less attractive.
