Carolyn Kennedy joined us for an interview from CK Nutrition, a nutritional consultancy for pet food that provides advice on nutritional formulations, pet food manufacturing controls and processes, food safety, and regulatory guidelines. 

During the pet food discussion during symposium she explained the reasons behind the interesting feeding trends occurring in the pet food industry that mirror human trends, identifying the fact that pet owners are striving to find products for their pets similar to what they actually eat.

The goals of holistic nutrition can be:

  • Decreased inflammation
  • Increased immunity
  • Improved gut health and nutrient uptake
  • Maintained cognitive health

Although holistic pet foods are currently just 20% of the overall pet food industry, it is expected to grow to 42% by 2017.
