Rockford, IL – May 14, 2019 – The May issue of Petfood Industry magazine includes a report on the leading global pet food companies with updated rankings of top companies plus additional data and analysis of key regions around the globe. The exclusive list is part of’s Top Pet Food Companies database, which provides profiles on leading companies in the market.

The Top Pet Food Companies Report details the top 50 companies in 2018 and a regional breakout of company locations worldwide. The report shows 51 pet food-related mergers and acquisitions took place with notable deals among pet food manufacturers, marketers and supplier companies. This has continued during the first few months of 2019, likely leading to additional changes.

“This year, the world’s leading pet food players had some significant revenue shifts due to the mergers and acquisitions,” says Debbie Phillips-Donaldson, Editor-in-Chief, Petfood Industry magazine. “Buying other companies is a key way for large players to grow. Plus, because pet food itself remains a growth market, it’s attractive to investors, private equity firms and companies from sectors like human food.”

To compile this report, Petfood Industry gathers and compiles information annually from every available resource, including an exclusive industry survey, regionally targeted pet food market researchers and other industry sources. The Top Company edition includes information not found elsewhere with additional details available online.
