    The only people buying premium food at the rich or upper middle class that is a very small percentage in the long run. I work in an area where Pets are on the human level meaning the pet parents buy them shoes etc. guarantee you in other poorer areas they ain’t buying them shoes

    Pet spending will be the first to go when times get tough.
    Do you honestly believe people will be buying luxury pet foods while people will be downgrading their food from beef/pork to chicken and rice to cut costs?

    This ceo is delusional, or straight up lying, I think its the latter.

    pets help people to be "human" or humane…They are family, and luckily they’ll eat slop to survive….and they will, happily.
