Abinpet organizes international business roundtable during FIFA World Cup

Organizers hope to strengthen image of Brazil as high-quality pet products exporter

Three international guests from the Brazilian Association of the Industry of Products for Pets (Abinpet) took part in a business program in Brazil in the Copa do Mundo (World Cup) Project, conducted by the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brazil).The program was held June 9–13, 2014, with four acting pillars: Industry presentation, visits to retail stores and factories, and business roundtables.

In the first meeting motivated by the World Cup, Abinpet received a Costa Rican company interested in veterinary and pet care products; Miguel Mendes de Leon, editor of Pets International Magazine (Netherlands); and Debbie Phillips-Donaldson, editor-in-chief of Petfood Industry Magazine (US). "We work for guests to arrive in Brazil with a consistent schedule, focused on knowing the domestic pet product," said José Edson Galvão de França, CEO of Abinpet. "With this, we hope to generate business and strengthen the image of Brazil as an exporter of high quality products for pets."

This was the third international action of Pet Brasil Project in 2014. In March, the organization promoted a technical-commercial mission that took 12  Brazilian businessmen from the pet industry to the US. During the visit, the professionals could monitor the Global Pet Expo, one of the largest trade shows in the country, and were in contact with major retailers of the American pet industry. In May, Abinpet organized a pavilion of Brazilian companies at Interzoo, a trade show held in Germany.
