In Japan, 72% stated that they were not currently raising any pets at all. Ratuken’s analysts conducted their survey in January 2021. Despite Japan’s relatively low pet ownership rate, numerous pet food companies are based in the country. These Japan-based companies appear in Petfood Industry’s Top Company’s Current Data.
