In the U.S., pet specialty retail has experienced a shift toward the “premiumization” of dog and cat food for the last decade. This strong trend is driven by pet owners, as well as pet food manufacturers responding to demand with an increase of natural, grain-free or raw premium pet foods. One area we will examine, is the latest growth trends in the U.S. and French markets. The competition for the specialty market also is changing as more pet owners are opting to buy pet food, treats and products online. We’ll discuss strategies on how the U.S. and French pet specialty retail market can compete against e-commerce pet products.



  • What "healthy" segments are well developed in the US vs. a more traditional French market.
  • Which "healthy" segments are still growing in both countries.
  • How new competition impacts the strategy of pet specialty retail.

This webinar is the first in the 2017 Pet Food Global Market Focus series presented by Petfood Industry and WATT Global Media.
