2000, Nr. 4, S. 56 News         Success for RCG Nordwest    The home, pet and garden department of the Raiffeisen-Central-Genossenschaft Nordwest, based at Münster, Germany, ended the 1999 financial year with a seven per cent increase in sales over the previous year. What is more, the pet category achieved a sales increase of 10 per cent, amounting to 31 per cent of the central cooperative's total sales of DM 100.2 Mio. The RCG names its successful own-brand policy as one reason for these good results.           Hunter turns 20    The Hunter company, specialists in dog, cat and equestrian articles, is celebrating its 20th birthday in April. The business is active throughout the world, producing more than 4 000 articles in the dog and cat supplies segment including collars and leads of leather or nylon.
