zooplus is Europe’s largest online retailer for pet supplies. As one of the first movers in a massive 26bn € market opportunity, zooplus was founded in 1999 in Germany to bring pet shops online. Thanks to an early focus on BI and a sophisticated sales and distribution process, zooplus was able to beat corporate players on their home turf.
