The Pet Food Industry Market - Oscar
PET FOOD INDUSTRY
You don't have to be a pet owner to consider an OSCAR franchise but when you can rely on statistics provided by the Pet Food Manufacturers Association (PFMA) you will see that it clearly offers a very strong business opportunity in an industry that is worth over £4 billion of which over £2.6 billion is pet food. A survey conducted by the Pet Food Manufacturers Association (PFMA) showed that 90% of pet owners believe that the food they feed their pet greatly affects its health and 92% of pet owners make sure they give their pet the best quality food.
According to Michael Bellingham, Chief Executive of the Pet Food Manufacturers' Association, "Health and nutrition is a key trend. Consumers are increasingly focusing on high quality, premium pet foods for their dogs, cats and other small pets. Health conscious consumers are aware that a good balanced diet can have a major impact on well being and this is equally relevant for their pets".
With one in two households owning a pet, the industry continues to grow. The PFMA states that there are 22 million pets in the UK with the top three being 8.5 million dogs, 8 million cats and around 3 million small animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs etc. Research also shows how our nation's love for pets is stronger than ever due to companionship needs, security or just simply for more family fun, making pets well and truly part of the nation's heritage.
'The Pet Food Market' highlights the potential within the industry, however, running your own business requires comprehensive training to ensure development and growth. To guide you through the various stages success can be achieved with OSCAR Training and Support.
