Market Information
European UnionSector Trend Analysis – Pet food trends in the European Union (Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada) - As more people begin to see their pets as family members, they have increasingly demanded pet foods that are similar to their own preferences. This humanization of pets has led to a "premiumization" of pet foods, where foods that have claims such as "organic," "raw" and "no additives or preservatives" lead in sales.
