About Petfood Forum

If you are a member of the Petfood manufacturing industry, Petfood Forum is the most important conference of the year to invest your budget to attend, and here are a few of the many reasons why:


Petfood Forum events are executive-level conferences for the global pet food and pet treat industry, and include an exclusive network of industry suppliers, co-packers and service providers. Attendees include professionals working in nutrition, ingredient and processing technologies, packaging, food science, R&D, product development, food safety, QA/QC, purchasing, import/export and regulatory compliance.

A sample of feedback from our attendees:
