The China pet care market grew to US$1.56 billion in retail sales of all pet products in 2014 and now accounts for more than 15% of the Asia-Pacific pet care region. Pet food sales specifically have increased to US$603.2 million in China, according to Euromonitor International data, with plenty more room to grow as more and more Chinese pet owners switch to feeding commercial pet foods to their pets.
At Petfood Forum China 2015: New Product and Brand Development Workshop, pet food professionals in China and Asia can learn how to develop products and brands to capture share in this dynamic market, as well as export markets. This exclusive conference features expert information that can help you take a new pet food or snack product idea to market and how to develop a brand that stands out in the marketplace and grabs the attention of today’s pet owners. Plenty of networking opportunities with other pet food professionals and leading industry suppliers are available, too.
Scheduled for August 28 at the World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, Petfood Forum China will again be co-located with Pet Fair Asia, one of the largest trade shows for the pet industry in China, which runs August 27-30, 2015 (www.petfairasia.com/en).

Pet owners with birds, small mammals and other types of non-dog/cat animals are demanding the best for their feathered, furry or scaly friends.
