Price: US$2,000

About this Report

The global pet food industry has long prided itself on being recession-proof and largely proved to be so during recent economic downturns. Consumers generally tend to not eschew pet food purchases in the face of economic woes. Sales are being further reinforced by ongoing pet humanisation, which particularly supports premium-positioned products, thus boosting retail value sales. However, consumers still seek out the best possible deals available, as value for money is paramount.
