Food Export-Midwest & Food Export-Northeast will be conducting a Petfood Ingredient Buyers Mission at the 2019 Petfood Forum. The Petfood Forum group of conferences and exhibitions are unique and exclusive events serving the global pet food manufacturing industry. They deliver the opportunity to learn the latest research and innovative information on pet nutrition, global pet food market growth, pet food safety, processing, packaging and much more—all from leading, recognized pet food industry experts.
Global retail pet food sales are expected to reach another record in 2019 as the trend away from table scraps continues in developing markets while consumers in more advanced markets shift to specialty and health-centered pet foods. Buyers from around the world have been vetted by an extensive network of In-Market Representatives for their purchasing power and their specific interest in pet food ingredients. This is the perfect low-cost opportunity to meet qualified buyers from around the world in one place.
Early registration is $150 through February 27. The registration deadline is March 20 - $225. Register online to participate.
