FRANKLIN, Tenn., Sept. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Since the beginning of the pandemic, 23 million (one in five) households have welcomed new pets1. As many people's daily routines have shifted to keep them at home more regularly, an increasing number of pet parents are looking to offer their pets more variety in food options. As a result, there has been an increased demand in the wet food category with sales up nearly 18 percent compared to last year2. So today, Mars Petcare is announcing an investment of $117 million in its Fort Smith, Ark., manufacturing facility, just months after the $145 million investment announced earlier this year.
