Statistics underline the importance of pet animals in society
Pet animals contribute significantly to the economy and to society as shown by statistics from FEDIAF.
Throughout Europe, an estimated 550.000 direct and indirect jobs are generated by pet ownership such as veterinarians or breeders or connected supply industries.
The pet food industry and related supply and services represent a combined annual turnover of about â‚¬ 24 billion.
Our products serve approximately 70 million pet owning households with annual pet food production of over 8 million tons.
Cats, dogs, small fluffy mammals, ornamental birds or aquaria â€“ the figures are a striking proof of the importance Europeans attach to their companion animals.
