Organic pet food sales are increasing at a rate three times as fast
as organic human food sales. "People want their pets to eat as
well as they do," says Nell Newman, co-founder of Newman’s Own
Organics and daughter of actor Paul Newman. Although a bag of organic
dog or cat food can be on the pricey side, organic pet foods are exploding
in popularity, particularly on the West Coast. Organic consumers can
purchase everything from organic catnip to organic dog cookies. With
skyrocketing sales, the labeling of these products is of increasing
concern, given the USDA has made recent announcements that it will
neither monitor nor police organic labeling of pet foods. Learn
