Each year, more than thousand cat and dog food references are launched worldwide, with a huge diversity in terms of varieties, segmentation and attractivity. Diana Pet Food has recently built a tool that can efficiently map kibbles from the market according to their key physico-chemical attributes and palatability performance. This unique methodology gives an accurate picture of kibbles similarities and disparities worldwide. Combined with a high level of expertise in palatability drivers, this innovative tool allows supporting pet food manufacturers wishing to develop increasingly efficient products.
