The well-being of our animals

The results of both surveys – conducted by the Institute for Management and Economic Research (IMWF) – are based on ‘Social Listening’, an extensive data analysis. The objective of this method is to capture customer opinions on brands and their products with regard to ‘price’ and ‘overall impression’ or the brand image. To collect this data, a targeted search is conducted on the internet and in social channels for statements related to these aspects. Both surveys are based on extensive sources: The ‘Price Winner 2022’ survey examined a total of about 19,000 companies or brands, and around 11 million mentions could be identified and analysed. For the ‘Germany’s Best 2022’ survey, 20,000 companies or brands were put to the test. The results are based on around 58 million mentions of companies.

The customer opinion of Dr.Clauder’s is definitive: From the customers’ point of view, the cost-benefit ratio is right and the brand is outstanding – 100 out of 100 possible points speak for themselves. But the results also clearly show something else: in addition to rational reasons for buying our products, emotional added values also play a key role.

As a responsible pet owner, you have probably asked yourself one or more of the following questions when you are choosing food for your pet:

  • Does the assortment cover the individual needs of my pet?
  • Are the ingredients of high quality?
  • Does the food have an additional benefit for my pet – for example, does it strengthen its joints?
  • Where do the raw materials for the food come from?
    Can I trust the manufacturer?
  • Is the food natural? I don’t want any additives to harm my four-legged friend!
  • Is the manufacturer committed to animal welfare?

Our products answer all these questions and provide added value.

Background information on the surveys

The annual ‘Price Winner’ and ‘Germany’s Best’ surveys are based on the social listening method and are carried out in two phases. In the first phase, the Institute for Management and Economic Research analyses websites, social media channels or news sites to find out which brands or companies are mentioned and ‘how’ are talked about.

Source base for ‘Price Winner 2022’: 19,000 companies or brands were analysed. In the process, around 11 million mentions within the investigation period from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022 were identified and recorded in a database.

Source base for ‘Germany’s Best 2022’: Around 58 million mentions for around 20,000 companies and brands could be identified and allocated within the survey period between April 2021 and April 2022.

In the second phase, the collected data is processed and analysed according to the specifications of the respective survey objective. A three-stage evaluation takes place for the categories ‘value for money’ and ‘brand image’ based on the following core questions:

  • Which brand is mentioned?
  • How is the topic ‘value for money’ or the brand discussed?
  • What is the tonality of the text fragment?

The mentions are evaluated with a sentiment analysis and rated as positive, neutral or negative. A conversion key then converts the results into comparable point values. Dr.Clauder’s scored 100 points in each of the current surveys, setting the benchmark for the pet food industry.
