Notable growing trends in the European pet food market

According to an estimate by the European Pet Food Industry Federation (FEDIAF), the umbrella association for various countries’ pet food industry associations, it is reported that among 21 European nations, a total of 75 million households owned at least one pet in 2014.

Annual sales of pet food products in Europe resulted in an annual turnover of an estimated EUR15 billion (US$16.7 billion) in 2014, according to the most recent FEDIAF report. That revenue resulted from sales of approximately nine million metric tons (9.9 US tons) of pet food.

The European pet food industry grew by approximately 1.8 percent over the three years leading up to 2014, according to that FEDIAF report. That growth fueled the operation of 650 plants. At those facilities, 80,000 people were directly employed. Another 700,000 people had indirect employment via positions in the veterinary field, pet specialty stores, suppliers, trade shows and related industries.
