Pet manufacturers have been racking up the sales from their pet foods over the past few years. They have been doing so well that they are now growing faster than packaged human food sales. The video above digs into a little more detail on just how quickly pet food sales are growing.
The latest acquisition in the pet food space shows how big pet food brands can be. General Mills recently acquired Blue Buffalo for $8 billion. Mars also purchased VCA pet care provider in 2017 for $9 billion to go with their purchase of IAMs for $3 billion 2014.
So Why so Much Capital Investment in Pet Food?
The $30.6 billion U.S. pet food market is expected to grow by 2.3% over the next five years compared to 1% in packaged human food. The fast-growing pet food market is not slowing down anytime soon, and investors want to grab profits while the industry is hot.
