Pet Industry Growth UK 2021
There has never been a better time to consider a franchise opportunity with OSCAR!
The pet industry is a vibrant growth market and provides an excellent business opportunity. It's no surprise it attracts significant interest when there is a growing tendency for individuals wanting to work with pets.
Since the start of the pandemic, a total of 3.2 million households have acquired a pet, according to the Pet Food Manufacturers’ Association. With the boom in pet ownership, there are now 34 million pets in the UK including 12 million cats and 12 million dogs, 3.2 million small mammals such as guinea pigs and hamsters, 3 million birds and 1.5 million reptiles. There are also 5 million aquaria. This equates to 17 million households (59%) responsible for a pet’s welfare.
Companion animals have been driving industry sales, and that's a trend that will continue for the foreseeable future.
Our nationwide network of Local Nutritional Advisors delivers an exciting range of nutritious pet foods (including small animal, wild bird and fish food), tasty treats, boredom-busting toys, healthcare and pet accessories straight to your door.
The importance of your pet’s happiness and health drives us to deliver nutritional excellence. That’s why our dog and cat food range only contain scientifically proven ingredients to maximise vitality: tailored to reflect life’s changing nutritional needs.
