In case you’ve ever wondered what’s in your pet food, you’ve probably been asking this question recently.
You’ve probably seen that the popular food giant, Pet Food Express, is now selling “fat burning” products that claim to burn fat.
So, what exactly is that fat burning stuff that’s supposed to do?
Well, the food company says that the products will help you burn more calories, so the food’s makers claim that these products are a good way to help you lose weight.
But it turns out that the product is really just another way to promote the company’s fat burning line.
The company sells the products through a partnership with the Pet Food Institute, a trade association of the largest pet food manufacturers in the US.
It’s a trade group that has its own marketing team that, according to its website, works to “promote pet food products in the best interest of pet owners.”
The Pet Food Institute is owned by Wal-Mart, which is the largest food company in the world.
Walmart and Pet Food are very similar in many ways.
Their parent company is the Walmarts Group, which also owns Wal-Mart.
And they both sell pet food and pet treats.
For example, Petfood is the official pet food of the US Military and the US National Institutes of Health.
On the Pet Food institute’s website, they list “health benefits of pet foods” as one of the company s “top priorities.”
“In our opinion, pet food offers benefits that can improve your overall health, reduce your risk of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes, and even increase your overall lifespan,” the company says.
“The PetFood Institute and the PetFood Industry are committed to offering our customers the best nutrition for their pets, regardless of breed, age, gender, or health status.”
While the pet food industry is certainly a major part of the American food supply, the industry isn’t the only one.
According to Petfood, there are also other pet food companies that make products for the same goals as the Petfood Institute.
There are also several food companies selling products specifically for the purpose of promoting pet diets.
Petfood sells its products through The Food Institute which is the trade group for the biggest pet food suppliers in the country.
This group represents the biggest food companies in the nation.
As a result, they control the pet supply chain.
In 2013, PetFood had an estimated $6.8 billion in annual revenue.
While PetFood is a major food company, the company has also been criticized by the National Restaurant Association for its marketing practices and for advertising campaigns.
Critics of the food industry claim that its marketing campaigns have promoted a high level of fat and sugar, leading to obesity and heart disease.
More recently, the National Restaurant Association has said that PetFoods marketing tactics have hurt the industry.
At the pet food industry’s annual meeting in September, PetFood president and CEO John O’Hare said that the industry’s marketing practices have been harmful to pet owners.
A number of pet food makers have also complained that Petfoods branding is harmful to consumers, as it promotes a “high fat and calorie content diet.”
Pet owners are understandably worried that this unhealthy diet is going to hurt their pets’ health.
They are also concerned that they may be losing money by not purchasing PetFood products, especially since PetFam has been leading in the pet industry for a while now.
If you or anyone you know is suffering from heart disease, diabetes, or obesity, you should consult with your veterinarian before making any changes to your diet.
