PET Food Processing - October 2020 - 15

to meet in person at Global
Pet Expo in February. A few
of the notable product trends
at that show included graininclusive diets, the development of complementary dry
and wet pet food formulas,
whole-prey nutrition, the use
of solutions-based ingredients and proliferation in wet,
fresh and frozen pet food
and treats.
New product launches this
spring and summer included
solution based offerings,
whole-grain and fiber-rich
ingredients, the convenience
of bars for on-the-go pet
owners, innovations to classic biscuit formats, creamy
treats, and multiple variations on freeze-dried proteins
and raw-coated offerings.
Despite new product introductions slowing, the push
for pet owners to feed a wider
variety of product formats -
often referred to as rotational
feeding - helps support the
sales growth seen in formats
other than dry kibble.
With a few notable exceptions, units sold have declined across the majority of
pet food and treat categories,
but the increase in the price
per unit across all categories
has provided the growth in
sales. Refrigerated and frozen
dog food, dog treats and cat
treats increased in units sold
during the last 52 weeks ending Aug. 9 compared to the
previous 52 weeks in the "US
Multi-Outlet" channel, according to IRI. Dry dog food
had the largest price increase
of $0.62 per unit, while wet
cat food and cat treats tied
for the smallest unit price
increase of $0.10 each. This
isn't surprising based on the
difference in the typical unit
