The Pet Industry Federation has revealed the finalists for this year’s record-breaking Pet Industry Awards.

The 2020 winners will be announced at an awards dinner – although, given the situation with the coronavirus outbreak, the organiser are ‘closely monitoring the situation” and hope to be able to update the trade shortly.

The 2020 awards were scheduled for the first night of new trade show Petindex, planned to take place in Milton Keynes on April 26-27.
