Husse Franchise UK. The UK pet food industry is booming, a 2018 report published by The Pet Food Manufacturers Association (PFMA) confirms a 400,000 rise in the UK dog population which now stands at a staggering 9 million.
Dogs are not the only pets to have moved up the charts, the cat population is at its highest for 5 years and now stands at 8 million.
Pets are big business in the UK with an estimated 46% of households owning a pet. The pet food industry in the UK is worth close to £3 billion and the biggest value areas are cats and dogs. Interestingly enough, pet owners are now showing a strong desire to feed their beloved companions complete and natural healthy pet food products as the days of buying any old bag of food from your local store are coming to an end.
One of the most effective ways of generating business as a Husse franchisee is by attending various shows, events and markets, a great way to meet local pet owners and their furry friends. It has so far been a very productive summer for Husse UK franchisees who have been busy planning and attending various shows and events up and down the country.
The largest event attended by Husse was the Bristol DogFest, welcoming over 18,000 visitors over 2 days! Both Husse Bristol South & Husse Weston-Super-Mare were present at events like Weston Rotary Dog Day and the North Somerset Agricultural Society’s 160th North Somerset Show.
The most high profile show attended by Husse was the Dumfries House Fun Dog Show in Scotland. This prestigious annual event attracted over 220 entries across 3 events; The Main Show, The Agility Show and The Doggie Dash. The day attracted a high number of visitors who came to experience the fun and help raise much needed funds for this year’s chosen charity, The Huskies Sledge Dog Rescue.
