As pet owners continue to value pet nutrition as high as their own, the demand for high-quality, health-conscious nutrition for our pets continues in an upward trend. This trend also includes the addition of nutrition-packed superfoods like pumpkin, chia seeds, kale, sweet potato, and honey in the food. In 2017, high quality pet food sales are expected to soar to an estimated $30B in the US market. Dry dog kibble holds the major portion of these sales with other dry pet kibbles including cat and fish food holding a steady second and third place respectively.
