"Dog Food in Ireland" Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Oct 05 2015

Based on provisional 2014 estimates, dog food is likely to register 2% growth in value terms with sales estimated at €83 million. With mixed economic fortunes being predicted for the year, consumers can be divided into two groups, those who have cut back completely and only have the budget for economy brands and those who are not willing to compromise on their dog’s nutritional needs and continue to opt for the highest quality products.

Competitive Landscape

Mars continued to lead brand sales of dog food in 2013 with a 44% retail value share. While its sales remained strong and it continued to lead with the success of its Pedigree brand, sales were down by over two percentage points on 2012. This was likely due to consumers switching to economy and premium brands with mid-priced brands losing out slightly. However, the Pedigree brand is well trusted and is still considered to be the top of all mid-priced range products. The company continued to work on its branding through promotional campaigns, such as the Pedigree Adoption Drive, which encourages the rehoming of abandoned pets.
