Pet food professionals attending Petfood Forum 2019 will have a valuable opportunity to become better educated on pet food labeling compliance during the AAFCO Pet Food Labeling Workshop. This day-long workshop will take place the day after Petfood Forum has ended on Thursday, May 2, at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown, the official Petfood Forum headquarters hotel. A separate registration is required to attend, sign up here.
Each participant will receive a 2-week subscription to the AAFCO Online Official Publication (OP) along with the Pet food Labeling Guide that will be used during the workshop.
Topics covered will include:
• Pet food product label construction

Participants in the workshop will benefit from:
• Increased productivity within the regulatory department
