Brand loyalty is dead – what killed It and how to put it back on the pet food shelf – The pet food shelf has become a maze, and it’s become difficult to remain loyal to a single brand. Robins outlines how and why the marketplace has gotten so crowded and the primary reasons pet parents brand-hop. She highlights the impact millennials and generation Z have on the pet food aisle and looks at a new, upcoming lifestyle trend that offers pets a rotational diet for better health by alternating proteins, recipes and textures. If brand monogamy as we know it is dead, is brand polygamy the new, next best thing?
