WASHINGTON, D.C., U.S. — On Jan. 29, 2013, the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and the USPOULTRY Poultry Protein and Fat Council will sponsor the Sixth Annual Pet Food Conference on the first day of the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE).
The forum will feature a number of sessions addressing topics ranging from regulatory issues to the technical aspects of pet food production, food safety, marketing and use of ingredients.
The day-long conference, from 8 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. in Room B-401/402 of the Georgia World Conference Center, will feature several experts discussing topics impacting today’s pet food and pet food ingredient manufacturers. Key speakers hail from the Center of Disease Control, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the Association of American Feed Control Officials and Eurofins, among others.
Last year’s Pet Food Conference attracted more than 200 attendees, and attendance is expected to increase with the inclusion of an additional IPPE partner. The 2013 International Feed Expo will be integrated with USPOULTRY’s International Poultry Expo and AMI’s International Meat Expo into a single, large tradeshow with an expected attendance of 25,000. The IPPE will be hosted in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S., from Jan. 29-31, 2013.
