Inflation and war became the dominant pet food news topics of 2022, as both the pandemic and canine dilated cardiomyopathy receded. While these large-scale phenomena influenced all in the pet food industry, certain companies had a more eventful 2022 than others. On PetfoodIndustry.com, these six articles were the most read compared to other news related to specific companies. Several of the top articles dealt with acquisitions. Two related to recalls or pet food safety issues. The third most read of the articles covered one Ukrainian company’s operations during the ongoing Russian invasion.
