Petfood Forum China 2014, scheduled for August 22 in Shanghai, will focus on pet nutrition, ingredients and formulation—the foundation for all petfood products and for new product development, the organizers have announced.
China is one of the fastest growing pet care markets worldwide, according to Eurmonitor, including its domestic petfood manufacturing industry. At Petfood Forum China, professionals from those manufacturers can get in-depth information from leading industry experts on the petfood product and ingredients market and the key ingredient categories for meeting companion animals’ nutritional needs—plus, how to formulate products to satisfy varied and sometimes conflicting requirements (marketing, nutritional and regulatory) as well as how to process petfoods to best deliver nutrient and product benefits.
Petfood Forum China will again be held at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center and will also feature leading industry supplier-sponsors and networking opportunities. The conference will be co-located with Pet Fair Asia, one of the largest trade shows for the pet industry in China, which runs August 21-24, 2014.

While dogs and cats continue to reign supreme, the growth of the “other” pet space can’t be denied: 9.9 million homes own a bird, 6.2 million homes have a small pet (usually small mammals) and 5.7 million homes own a reptile.
