If you have a pet you may have noticed it’s been difficult to find their favorite foods in stores. The issue is that many people got pets during the pandemic, and retailers such as Amazon, Target, and PetSmart are desperately trying to keep up with increased demand and strains on the supply chain. It’s also been affected by higher prices of basic foodstuffs such as corn, soy, and meat, on top of rising transportation and labor costs that are affecting all food supplies—for pets and humans alike. Pet food makers are also facing increased competition for animal- and plant-based oils because more of those are going into renewable fuel supplies.
