The pet population is currently outnumbering the human population in New Zealand, and we have the second highest pet ownership rate in the world.
Our loyal companions deserve to eat nutritious and safe food and, as the NZ Pet food Association points out, pet food is often stored in the refrigerator, next to food for human consumption.
