Newman’s Own, Inc., BiOpet Pet Care Pty Ltd, Nestlé S.A., Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food Company, Inc, and Castor & Pollux Natural Petworks, among others, are the major players in the global organic pet food market.
The global organic pet food market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5% in the forecast period of 2021-2026. As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the market is expected to be driven by the increase in pet ownership and rise in per capita expenditures on premium pet care products.
Organic pet food consists of natural vitamins, proteins, amino acids, fatty acids, and minerals without any preservatives, artificial flavours or colours, or genetically modified content. They are customised according to the pet's breed and age. Certified organic foods must constitute at least 95% organic ingredients. They are easy to spot but rare in usage. The most consumed organic pet foods in the US are partially organic, that is, they contain varying amounts of nutrient content, adhering to the USDA norms.
The increasing recognition of pet healthcare concerns and pet care programmes through social media platforms has been contributing to the industry growth. In addition to this, there has been a rise in sensitisation towards animals and pet adoption partakes in the past few years. Moreover, the COVID-19 outbreak and announcement of lockdown had caused panic buying among the pet owners, thus, increasing the sales of organic pet food in early 2020.
