Each dry dog food has unique physico-chemical and chemosensory attributes corresponding to a given level of attractivity. Indeed, the smell and the taste, but also the moisture, the chemical composition, or the texture of the kibble are known to have a significant impact on the palatability of the food.
Diana Pet Food's experts in palatability have created a database gathering the physico-chemical characteristics of numerous products representative of the global dog food market. With over 4,000 pieces of data collected, it gives a unique picture of the global dog kibble similarities and disparities worldwide. This unique tool can help dog food manufacturers to position their products in their competition landscape.
