Central Garden & Pet saw a 3% drop in its third-quarter sales to US$465 million, compared with 2009 sales of US$482 million.
The company's net profits also declined from US$31.1 million in 2009 to US$25.9 million. The pet segment of the company saw sales increase by 4% to US$222.7 million, partially due to a 3% increase over the previous year in the sale of branded pet products.
