"Premium pet food is the fastest growing segment in the pet food category," said Mitch Madoff, global exclusive brands coordinator at Whole Foods Market. "We know how much our customers care about what they feed their pets, so we're glad to offer a new line of products with premium ingredients at a value price."

According to Mintel market research, about 79 percent of pet owners consider the quali­ty of pet food to be as important as the qual­ity of human food. 

Made with chicken, salmon and other wholesome, nutrient-rich ingredients, Whole Paws contains no corn or soy, no animal by-products, no artificial colors, no artificial preservatives, and no added sugar— and the new line meets Whole Foods Market's strict quality standards.

Whole Foods Market will also host an "It's in the Bag" pet photo contest through its Facebook page ( facebook.com/wholefoods) from Oct. 1 to 11. Fans are invited to post fun photos of their cats and dogs playing in any Whole Foods Market reusable bag. The grand prize winner will be announced Oct. 25. The winner will receive a gift basket of pet products and a $50 Whole Foods Market gift card. Facebook users will also be given an opportunity to vote, with four fan favorites each winning a $25 gift card.
