Healthy eating, is a craze that has spread all over and is even influencing how we feed our pets. This is especially true, for people who treat their animals like part of the family. Companies that make dog food, one of them being Freshpet Inc., have begun to tap into the healthy pet food market.
The company specializes in making gourmet food for your pets. They make their foods using fresh ingredients and no preservatives. They also make sure that whichever can of food you take is fresh, by minimizing the time their products stay on the shelves. They are currently the only company in the industry producing refrigerated pet food.
Traditional pet food manufactures, have been blending lamb and salmon into their food, as well as making organic grain free food. Due to the introduction of healthy eating for pets, these companies have been forced to up their game. Companies have begun to make foods that help your pet lose weight. They have also been cutting back on the use of preservatives and additional flavors, as well as using fresh berries and fruits in their foods and treats.
The pet food industry is currently worth $23.7 billion. The treats from Freshpet Inc. may cost at least twice the amount of normal pet food, but its sales have managed to shoot up by 37%, earning the company over $103 million. Wall Street has been a bit skeptical about the success of the company, because they use fresh meat and chicken, which is expensive. Mr. Thompson, the company CEO, is however confident that the company will make a profit in 2016.
