New Petfood Innovation Workshop and Pet Food Experience at Kansas State University Announced for this Fall

Due to high demand, another Petfood Innovation Workshop: Next Generation Treats event featuring an increased emphasis on providing a hands-on experience, will be held this fall on October 28-30, 2015, in collaboration with Kansas State University’s “Pet Food Experience”. The Pet Food Experience is hosted by the Kansas State Pet Food Program Team on the university’s main campus in Manhattan, Kansas, and utilizes facilities within the community.

No tricks - lots of treats

Scheduled to take place just prior to Halloween, the multi-day event is a joint industry-academic venture to promote research, innovation and talent development focused on pet food and pet treat manufacturing. At these two conjoint events attendees can expect two days of academic research presentations combined with the hands-on creation of new types of pet treats in the workshop sessions, several networking opportunities and facility tours.

The Petfood Innovation Workshop is expected to sell-out again and will include the full Pet Food Experience agenda. Space is limited for the hands-on Workshop to the first 100 registrants. The Kansas State Pet Food Experience will also be available as a separate registration, and promises to have additional capacity. Registration and more event details are due to be released in August.

Stay tuned for announcements regarding registration opening.
