2001, Nr. 3, S. 16 News    New Fressnapf stores    The German franchise organisation Fressnapf, which operates over 330 outlets throughout Europe, intends to open new stores at Klagenfurt in Austria, Crissier in Switzerland, Jenfeld in Hamburg, Hösbach, Tuttlingen, Lauingen (Germany).     Terrific growth for Futterhaus    In announcing its figures for 2000, the franchising organisation Futterhaus of Elmshorn notes a 16 per cent increase in like-for-like sales to DM 121 mio.

We shall, however, be observing the market carefully in order to determine the right point in time for adopting the worldwide Iams strategy. We are convinced that the two-brand strategy will provide a phase of growth for the premium segment when this moment actually comes. Such growth will also benefit the specialist trade."    Experts in the sector are unanimously of the opinion that the point of time referred to by Bruijn for launching "Iams" for both dogs and cats in the German food trade should be no later than next year.
