This Friday, we will kick off by having a brief follow-up discussion with the group to ask you to tell us how to best continue the conversation about pet supply and demand. What steps do you think we need to take next and what data do we need to get to increase transport, which is down 17% since 2019?
Here's a recap of the full agenda and resources shared today. Have a great weekend!
