Reported last year, but Mars drew back and the deal didn't go through. Here it is again and the deal seems done. link contains a list of all pet related things Mars owns. It would not be wrong to suspect a monopoly in the making here.

Mars Petcare announced in a press release today (11/1/22) “that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Champion Petfoods.”

I worked for a Mars owned vet for 2 yrs and it was dreadful. They announced this news on our associate website. They love putting people with no vetmed history into leadership positions.

Capitalism still allows us to educate ourselves and make our own choices. To be the best advocates for our cats. That’s why we’re here on this forum. Let’s stay focused on our cats.

This forum allows us to learn who owns what company both pet food and vet care. That is one of the main strengths of this site. It is well to be wary of monopolies. Historically monopolies have evaded the general good in terms of quality and pricing. It is always a good thing to know where to shine the light.
