Consumers expect pet food, treats, and toys that are U.S.-sourced and American-made to meet their high standards of quality and safety. Manufacturers must source their ingredients with the highest level of transparency. Retailers should educate their customers about pet products that are made in the U.S.A.
Made in America
The “Made in the U.S.A.” category is stronger than ever, and it ranks among the leading categories for product label placement as brands seek to call out where their ingredients and materials are sourced and assembled. Consumers took notice of the U.S.-made category thanks to the melamine recalls of 2007, turning “Made in the U.S.A.” into a noteworthy selling point.
Fifteen years later, manufacturers continue to respond to consumer desire for American-made goods, and “made in the U.S.A.” has become a noteworthy selling point. If a product is made in the United States, it’s more than likely that this fact will be clearly indicated — even highlighted — on its packaging. Consumers expect pet food, treats and toys that are U.S.-sourced and American-made to meet their high standards of quality and safety.
It’s up to manufacturers to source their ingredients with the highest level of transparency while retailers would be wise to educate their customers about pet products that are made in the U.S.A.
