The increasing humanisation of pets is enabling pet food manufacturers to offer premium products targeted towards pet owners, the report states.
“Humanisation of pets implies that pet owners treat pets like members of their family and thus they are increasingly buying premium and super-premium foods and sophisticated snacks and treats for pets.
“Premium pet foods are natural, organic, have higher quality and are safer than regular pet foods. In 2016, about 14% of pet food launches in the USA were positioned as indulgent or premium. ”
