About The Singapore Pet Food Market
In 2016, Singapore had a market size of US$78.0 million which grew into US$91.6 million in 2020. The projected market size by 2025 is US$111.9 million. Every category of pet foods has contributed to the growth in Singapore and seemingly will continue to do so. In 2020, research shows that more than half of the pet food market was made up of dog food at 62.1% followed by cat food at 26.2%.
"Singapore has always been a leader in advanced technologies and food production. Being able to provide Noochies! beyond the North American market is a wonderful milestone and I look forward to continuing to work with Polygen far into the future to provide even more nutritious and sustainable pet food options." said Lejjy Gafour, CEO of CULT.
"Factory farming in Asia for livestock and seafood poses enormous environmental and forced labor risks. It's truly an insane system that our pet foods are working against. Partnering with Polygen is step in the right direction for our company and the sustainable future of South East Asia," Joshua Errett, VP of Product Development at CULT.
"We are excited to be working with Cult Food Science Inc, and to be distributing the Noochies brand in Singapore. At Polygen, we only source from ethical and responsible manufacturers of premium pet products, who procure from sustainable resources, which makes our partnership with Cult Food Science the perfect fit," said Maurice Yeo, Director, Polygen Asia Pte Ltd.
