New Zealand is a nation of pet lovers. In New Zealand 64% of households own at least one companion animal, with a total pet population of 4.6 million, they outnumber people. This is the second highest rate of pet ownership in the world.

Cats are New Zealand's most popular pet with 44% percent of households owning an average of 1.8 cats. That's a total cat population of 1.134 million.

There are 683,000 pet dogs in New Zealand with 28% of households owning at least one dog.

These pets are more than animals sharing our homes, they are viewed as members of the family and valued companions.

For most pets commercially prepared foods forms the sole source of nutrition. Therefore, consumers expect high standards of quality, nutrition and value.

Members of the NZPFMA are committed to providing consumers and their pets with products that meet the complex nutritional requirements of our companion animals. Petfood manufacturers are always working to increase their knowledge of pet nutrition ensuring the food is palatable and healthy.
