The Brazilian Association of Pet Products Industry, Abinpet, recently hosted a Brazilian pavilion at Zoosphere 2012, the Russian trade show of products and services for pets, which was held in October 11-13.
Three Abinpet-associated companies took part in the Brazilian pavilion at Zoosphere: Brazilian Pet Foods, Eccopetz and Guabi Group, all of which exhibited new products for dogs and cats, including petfood and natural pet treats. Aimed at stimulating Brazilian exports, the Abinpet-associated companies networked with 250 other companies from countries such as Belarus, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, China, Thailand and Ukraine.
“A pavilion made of Brazilian companies reinforces the potential of Brazil in the pet sector. The Brazilian space called the attention of the public and let importers confident for future businesses. Companies' credibility increases due to the support of Abinpet and Apex-Brazil,” said Robson Fonseca, international trade manager at Guabi.
While cat trends continue, the pandemic has added to overall slow-growth treatment of the cat food market.
Premiumization and humanization, as well as automation, fueled continued operation growth in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic.
