entering the price-conscious
Food, Drug and Mass (FDM)
channel, traditionally higherpriced super premium brands
could be lowering the overall
price the market will bear for
these products. Data reported by Chicago-based market
research firm IRI from the last
52 weeks ending Aug. 11, 2019
shows the "US Multi-Outlet"
channel - which includes
grocery, drug, mass market,
military, select clubs and dollar retailers - experienced an
overall price-per-unit increase
for dry dog food of $0.52 and
an increase of $0.29 for dry
cat food compared to the same
time period one year ago. Wet
dog food was up per-unit
by $0.20 and wet cat food
was up $0.09. The price-perunit was also up across frozen
and refrigerated pet foods, as
well as pet treats for both cats
and dogs.
On average, prices in the
US multi-outlet channel aren't
declining, but there are some
other notable changes. Sales
are up across the board except
for refrigerated and frozen cat
food, which dropped 3.3%, and
semi-moist dog food, which
dropped 1%. Unit sales declined in almost all categories
except for refrigerated and frozen dog food, semi-moist cat
food, dog treats and cat treats.
Dry food shows some of the
smallest increases while other
food formats - wet for both
cats and dogs, semi-moist cat
food and refrigerated and frozen food for dogs - showed
more than twice the growth
of dry. With dry food being
the long-standing preference
of dog owners, other formats
have a long way to climb to
compete with dry dog food's
share of the market. Cat food,
