The big stories
In 2018, the global pet food industry witnessed a wave of mergers and acquisitions, as well as rapid expansion of customisable pet food subscription services. As more pet food brands touch on ingredient provenance, the clean label trend fuels the emergence of greater detail on ingredient sourcing and production.
In the next two years
Concerns around plastic waste will forge collaborative partnerships to improve pet food packaging recycling. While protein derived from plants may soon play a large role in pet food, urbanisation also creates opportunities to cater to pets who are exposed to more hectic and stressful urban lives.
In five years and beyond
A new era of digitalisation will provide pet owners with interactive solutions to care for and connect with their pets like never before. Pet food brands will innovate to capture the new wave of products related to healthy ageing and wellbeing, and will explore biotechnology to engineer sustainable meat alternatives.
