DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 4, 2018--The "Manufacture of Prepared Animal Feeds and Pet Food in South Africa 2018" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The proposed draft Animal Feeds and Pet Food Bill, which should have been available for public comment by the end of 2016, was published for comment in 2017 and is expected to be tabled during 2018. Once introduced, the regulation will introduce risk-based principles for animal feed production, fundamentally changing the way the industry operates to ensure sustainably-produced safe feed and food for livestock, pets and people.

The estimated value of South African feed production for 2017 remained at 2015 levels, at R50bn per annum, as did the pet food industry, at R5bn. Total 2017 feed production was 11.136 million metric tons (MMT), down from 11.74MMT in 2016 and stakeholders fear the sector could contract for the second year running.

21 industry players are profiled, including the four local feed producers that feature in the Alltech 2017 top 100 global feed producers' list: Astral Meadow Feeds, Quantum Nova Feeds, RCL Foods and Sovereign Food Investments. Also profiled is Promeal (Pty) Ltd which asserts it is the country's leading wet dog food manufacturer with a market share of more than 55%.
