Animal lovers are stepping up when it comes to selecting a food for their pet. We live in a society where the public is moving towards a more health-conscious brand of eating, and the pet food industry is capitalizing on this trend. One company, Freshpet, Inc., now offers the first line of refrigerated pet foods, and their selections look and smell good enough to eat. In fact, Michael Hieger, the manufacturing chief of Freshpet, Inc, sampled a piece and stated, “Tastes just like Thanksgiving.”
Sales of these specialized pet foods have skyrocketed by 45% in the Unites States since 2009. This year the demand will cause sales to top one billion dollars. Companies are even integrating new trends like the Paleo diet.
Nestle Purina has been a pioneer in creating new products for the discerning pet lover. They have created a website where owners can create customized blends for their pooch. Purina also developed the Beneful.com‘s line of dog food, which includes dry food, wet food, and treats. Purina has hired a team of nutrition experts to develop their Beneful products.
Beneful‘s wet dog food is available online on Amazon in the classic Incredibites and Chopped Blends. In addition, PurinaStore offers Medeleys that almost sound good enough to eat. These flavors include Tuscan Style Medley with beef, carrots, rice, and spinach, Romana Style Medley with chicken, carrots, pasta, and spinach, and Mediterranean Style Medley with lamb, tomatoes, brown rice, and spinach. They also offer delectable sounding recipes including Beef Stew, Roasted Chicken, and Savory Rice and Lamb Stew.
Trends in health and wellness have lead to people choosing more organic and wholesome foods. Now animal owners can do the same for their pets by purchasing these new line of specialized foods that allow you to feed your pets as well as you feed yourself!
