In a difficult financial time,  Oscar Pet Foods  is hanging on to its reputation as the UK's leading petfood home delivery franchise business, with a steadily growing network, according to  Franchise UK .

Statistics from the  Pet Food Manufacturers' Association  confirm petfood in the UK currently is a £1.5-billion growth industry-showing a change in UK pet care.

But some pet owners still are buying  petfood  with little knowledge of a balanced diet, according to the Web site.

Oscar nutritional advisors aim to build customer loyalty by providing this expertise to their clients, and the company enables individuals to create a franchise, allowing for extra income.
