Direct-to-customer or D2C pet food is a business method in which pet food producers sell to customers directly via the Internet or physical retail outlets. The quality of ingredients, openness in sourcing, and customization choices for pet owners are frequently emphasized by direct-to-customer pet food manufacturers.

D2C, which eliminates the seller as an intermediary, has begun to reshape the market. Although this strategy was initially employed by top companies involved in the pet food market from the start, innovative direct-to-customer (D2C) pet food companies reach their target audience through their online stores, where clients can research, buy, interact, and learn about their preferred products.
