Fulfilling a 900 paw-cent increase in orders for James Wellbeloved/Mars Petcare
Mars Petcare has been providing a jumbo menu of tasty pet food for many generations of four-legged friends.
Cupboards across the UK contain brands like Pedigree, Whiskas, Royal Canin and James Wellbeloved – all from Mars Petcare – and there are probably a few paw marks on the door!
Innovations in pet nutrition, veterinary care and technology makes Mars Petcare leaders of the pack. With a network of veterinary clinics and hospitals across the world, a strong presence as advocates for responsible pet ownership, and charity support for pet homelessness – they are considered by many to be best in show in the pet care industry.
Everyone’s gone barking mad for pet care
Pet ownership has increased dramatically since the global COVID pandemic hit in 2020, particularly in the 24–35-year-old age group. Research from Pet Food Manufacturers’ Association shows that over one third of young adults are now pet owners.
Their pampered pets might have social media accounts, wellness rituals, diet and fitness plans and wardrobes full of ‘high furshion’ and ‘haute cat-ture’ to rival an A-list celebrity. Needless to say, the origin of the ingredients in their food is of great importance.
The James Wellbeloved range of cat, dog and ferret food from Mars Petcare is natural and free from added artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. That makes it a highly desirable choice for increasing numbers of health-conscious pet owners with a keen interest in pet nutrition and wellbeing.
Since the James Wellbeloved range has grown in popularity, Mars Petcare has needed the help of our order fulfilment services to store, pick, pack and dispatch the booming number of orders flooding into their ecommerce website.
Top quality pet care fulfilment optimises a major window of opportunity
Fullers’ slick onboarding process helped this division of Mars Petcare’s ecommerce business to get up and running within just two weeks, during a time of high demand.
That meant they wasted no time in capitalising on the giant window of opportunity that increasing pet ownership has presented for businesses in the pet food industry.
Here’s how we achieve it:
