With 4 424 visitors and 128 exhibitors, the Anido in Kortrijk celebrated a brilliant comeback. It once again impressively proved its claim to be the most important event for the pet industry in Belgium and northern France.

Pawr from the Netherlands celebrated its debut at Anido with a purely plant-based line of dog food. Animal proteins are completely dispensed with in the dry food, as are insect proteins. Company founder Fia Luijerink sees a lot of potential in her concept and can already look forward to listings in Holland, Denmark and even South Korea.
Suziria from Ukraine was there for the first time. Among other things, it presented a brand new line of premium dry food for dogs and cats. Containing exclusively fresh meat and superfood components, the Savory line is aimed primarily at modern and younger pet owners, as marketing manager Yulia Voroshylova (centre) explained.
Gosbi from Spain is the number 1 in the independent pet trade and among veterinarians in its home country. The company now wants to significantly expand its export share of currently around 30 per cent. The current export focus is on customers in France and Israel.
Edgard & Cooper appeared with a particularly modern stand design. Its products were so well received by the trade fair audience that they presented the company with an Anido Award in the pet food category.
Wholesale companies are traditionally strongly represented at Anido. Trudo’s Pet Products from Sint-Truiden (Belgium) specialised in dog and cat food at an early stage and it focuses particularly on the products of Czech manufacturer Vafo.
