Current value sales of other petfood in Switzerland are expected to grow by 1 percent in 2012, reaching CHF70 million (US$75.2 million), according to Euromonitor International’s new report.
The report, Other Pet Food in Switzerland , expects the other petfood category will account for 13 percent of overall petfood sales in 2012 as the number of households that own fish, small mammals and reptiles grows.
