Whole Foods Market is introducing Whole Paws, a new line of premium-value petfood comprised of 24 products for dogs and cats. The Whole Paws line includes a range of items, such as grain-free adult dog food and training treats, indoor cat formula and litter with baking soda.
Premium petfood is the fastest growing segment in the petfood category," said Mitch Madoff, global exclusive brands coordinator at Whole Foods Market. "We know how much our customers care about what they feed their pets, so we're glad to offer a new line of products with premium ingredients at a value price.
Made with chicken, salmon and other wholesome ingredients, the Whole Paws products contain no corn or soy, no animal by-products, no artificial colors, no artificial preservatives and no added sugar.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
