Voice of narrator: The second largest export market for Canadian pet food producers is the European Union. In 2016 this market was valued at an estimated $15.6 billion Canadian dollars.
The EU holds incredible potential for the Canadian pet food producer. This lucrative market will become even more attractive once CETA comes into force.

Canada’s global pet food exports in 2016 amounted to $938M Canadian dollars. Of that total, 13% was destined for EU member states.
n 2016, we were the 5th among non-EU pet food suppliers with Canadian pet food exports to the EU reaching $120 million Canadian dollars. However, that represented only 1% of global pet food exports to the EU.
There’s room to expand exports based on the reputation and quality of Canadian products. Here is a quick snapshot of the EU Pet Food market.
