Pet Food Field Trip to Walmart

by Susan Thixton

I took an animal school outing to the other day. It was a disheartening check out. I will not point out any by name – however the journey offered me with some important family food sales techniques to show you.

The number one intriguing marketing strategy – and I have actually altered the specific words to safeguard the identity of this animal food (got ta play good)… Blazoned throughout one family pet food was Crunchy Beefy Nuggets. It has absolutely nothing to do with the family pet food – it is actually simply a name.

The real names of the animal foods were ‘Steak and Vegetable Flavor' or ‘Chicken and Fish Flavor' – one family pet food got really particular with ‘Albacore Tuna and Yellow Fin Tuna Flavor'. FLAVORED ways simply that – the family pet food is simply seasoned by tuna or steak – which does not imply much in the method of nutrition for the animal.

Among the family mentioned ‘No Fillers' on the front of the bag. In the active ingredient list I discovered Ground Corn, Chicken spin-offs, Corn Gluten Meal to be the very first 3 active ingredients of the animal food. That checks out like fillers to me!

Another animal food boasted ‘New Shapes and '. Dyes are questionable and supply no dietary worth to the animal.

One of the family pet foods specified it included Protein and Phosphorus for Strong Muscles. According to Wikipedia the meaning of phosphorus is as follows: “The most crucial business usage of phosphorus-based chemicals is the production of fertilizers.

I discovered numerous pet foods with photos of steak and chicken and fish on the front of the cans or bags, however I didn't discover numerous pet foods with steak or chicken or fish inside the bag or can. I did discover lots of pet foods with BHA and BHT (chemical preservatives connected to cancer), Animal Fat (FDA figured out to be the animal food component most likely to include euthanized consisting of the euthanizing drug), and Dyes (just benefits the family pet owner – has no dietary advantage to the animal).

I left the Walmart animal food aisle sensation prevented. Throughout my 20 minute or so go to about 5 or 6 consumers came into the family pet food aisle and included a bag of animal food to their cart. I comprehend that every family pet owner can not manage to buy a $25 or greater bag of animal food – however no animal owner ought to invest a cent on animal foods that consist of spin-offs, meat and bone meals, and BHA/BHT (or other chemical preservatives).

I will not point out any pet foods by name – however the journey offered me with some important animal food sales techniques to share with you.
