The pet supplies sector, as highlighted by the Assalco-Zoomark Report on pet food and pet care presented on the first day of the event, generates a market in Italy with some impressive statistics: the main sector relating to cat and dog food is worth 2.431 billion euros and has grown by 8% in value and over 4% in volume over the last year.
The supply chain for pet products is one of the most dynamic in the Italian economy and there are now growing calls, which were reiterated several times during the event, for the government to rectify the issue of VAT, which stands at 22% for all pet products, on a par with luxury goods.
