On April 29, 2020, the Kansas Department of Agriculture, Food Export-Midwest and Food Export-Northeast will be conducting a Pet Food Ingredient Buyers Mission during Petfood Forum 2020. This exclusive program connects qualified buyers with ingredient suppliers during the pet food industry’s must-attend conference and exhibition. Serving the global pet food manufacturing industry, Petfood Forum is scheduled for April 27-29, 2020, in Kansas City, Missouri.
This is a low-cost opportunity to meet qualified buyers from around the world at one place. All buyers are qualified and have expressed interest in a variety of US pet food and pet food ingredient products.
The Pet Food Ingredient Buyers Mission format includes one-on-one meetings with buyers in which pet food ingredient suppliers can provide product samples, build relationships and drive sales. Participating companies will gain insights into demand, competition and market-specific growth opportunities.
Registration for the Pet Food Ingredient Buyers Mission will open soon.
Participating buyers in 2019 included: Farmina Pet Foods from Brazil; Nestlé Purina Columbia from Columbia; Sanucasa from Guatemala; and Harim Pet Food Company from South Korea. More details on the 2020 participating buyers will be released soon.
