Durango, Colo.– Zuke's™, the leader in performance-driven natural and organic pet nutrition, announced its 2010 retailer support initiatives, many of which are current in effect. The company, which specializes in innovative, natural, healthful treats and chews targeted to the unique nutritional needs of dogs and cats, is focusing on sell-through support for its retail partners.

Natural and organic food and supplements for pets sold at natural/organic food retailers accounted for approximately $712 million in sales in 2008.

Sales are expected to top the $1 billion mark by 2009, according to estimates from Nutrition Business Journal, August 2009: U.S. Animal Nutrition Industry Overview.

We want to support this trend by providing our retail partners with the tools and incentives they need to increase the sell through of these products in natural and general grocery,” said Patrick Meiering, founder of Zuke's.
