Success Case Study: Purina Tidy Cats Lightweight Litter – Bringing Convenience And Simplicity To A Less Pleasant Household Task


The pet care industry has become big business, especially in the US. However, while some categories – especially pet food – have been quite innovative, it has been more difficult to prove inspirational in categories like cat litter. With pet ownership continuing to rise, significant rewards are on offer to brands who can establish a truly valuable product proposition.
