Illinois-based Roquette America will host a two-day symposium on functional ingredients in petfoods at Roquette University, in the company's Customer Innovation Center.
The forum, which will take place October 22â€“23, 2014, will explore innovative ways to incorporate functional proteins, fibers and starches into more nutritious petfoods. Attendees will gain a new perspective for creating healthier foods that appeal to pets and will have the opportunity to share challenges, solutions and inspiration with other industry members.
Registration for the event is US$250.
