Posted August 08, 2018 12:01:25 A pet food store chain, which owns dozens of pet food companies, has announced that it will sell pet food products for the first time since it started to stock them in 2014.
The Pet Food and Nutrition Association of America (PFAA) said it will start selling pet food in stores starting in March 2019.
The PFAA said the new pet food brands, which it says will “make it easier for customers to make informed food choices, will offer the best quality ingredients and provide customers with the most value for money.”
Pets are the biggest consumer group in the United States.
According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), pet food sales totaled $16.3 billion in 2016.
Pet food sales will continue to be a big driver of the US economy, with the industry accounting for $1.3 trillion in sales.
Pet owners can purchase their pet food online and online in pet stores and grocery stores.
The APPA says its membership of more than 40,000 pet food retailers is the largest in the US.
Pets are expected to make up a significant portion of the pet food market in the future.
But for now, pet food stores will have to be on the lookout for new brands.
“We have a lot of exciting announcements coming,” PFAa CEO Joe Sperry said.
“But we’re going to have to get in the habit of making the products we sell the best.”
The new pet-food brands will be available in stores in April, 2019, and the first batch of pet-friendly products will go on sale later in 2020.
In September, PetSmart announced a partnership with PetFlex, a pet food retailer, to launch PetFLEX, the pet-supplemented pet food brand.
