Ardent Mills Showcases On-trend Ingredients for Pet Food

Approximately 95% of U.S. pet owners consider their pets as part of the family, with many desiring pet food options that address the same health concerns influencing human food production. As a result, today’s pet food manufacturers are challenged with delivering on-trend products that appeal to both pet owners and their furry friends. Incorporating ancient grains and plant-based grain alternatives like chickpeas is one way that pet food manufacturers can satisfy both.

 

With 68% of Americans owning pets, it’s becoming increasingly important to find the right balance. In fact, research shows that dog owners spend approximately $300 per year on dog food and treats, and cat owners spend more than $290 annually on cat food and treats. If presented with a compelling reason to do so, many say they would be willing to increase their pet food spending by at least 12%, according to a 2017 survey by American Nutrition, Inc.

 

At Ardent Mills, we’re passionate about bringing people the goodness of plants and grains through innovative and unique ways — and that includes creating on-trend ingredients for pet food manufacturers. To help you meet the humanization and premiumization trends that continue to affect the direction of the pet food industry, we offer:

 

  • Grain alternatives and plant-based ingredients
  • Organic, non-GMO and natural ingredients
  • Clean-label ingredients

 

With a variety of offerings to share, we’re thrilled to be exhibiting at the Pet Food Forum on April 29-May 1 in Kansas City, Mo. Stop by booth 1206 to speak with The Annex by Ardent Mills team and learn more about our ingredients for pet food.
