Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/08/2014 -- Volume growth in cat treats accelerated over the course of the review period, peaking in 2013. Positive growth is expected in the category again in 2014 and this is set to lend considerable weight to the overall increase in value sales of cat food expected during the year.

The key trends seen in cat food over the review period include the rising preference of cat owners for healthy cat food which contributes to the wellbeing of their pet cats, the pet humanisation trend, the rising demand for convenience in terms of packaging and the growing role of cat treats as a supplement to dry cat food and wet cat food.
