Perfection Pet Foods, LLC (PPF) is a leading manufacturer and packager of private label and co-manufactured pet food and pet snack products.
The show was Zoomark and the venue was Bologna. Exhibitors united in defining the scene in Europe as dominated by the top five multinationals and a small clutch of strong regional players, yet still with opportunities for the factories that want to supply the supermarkets with store brand goods. The predicted rise in private label can mean only a struggle for the big brands to maintain market share, said the people on several Zoomark stands. Some insiders even think that the household names of international petfoods face a fight to stay competitive. Their corporate cultures and locations are said to give them added costs in manufacturing and distribution when compared with the most efficient private labelling groups. How much extra is debatable, but one assessor said some manufacturers may actually be producing at twice the cost of others.
Private label manufacturing sometimes seems like European petfood's best-kept secret. Few people outside the Euro-zone appear to realize that already over 25% of the petfoods sold here are private label, in the sense of having been manufactured for someone else's brand. So high is the sector's pace of expansion currently, that forecasts made only a matter of months ago are being revised. Not long ago it was safe to predict a 30-33% market share for the private labellers within the coming three years. Now a sensible revision would take the predicted level up to 35%, if not higher.
