Mr Van Praagh has been actively involved in PFMA committees for a number of years, including the Executive and Communications Committees and the Commercial Raw Producers Working Group.   

Mr Van Praagh said “I have represented the commercial raw pet food sector and the eleven companies within PFMA membership at the Executive Committee over the past two years. I am excited and honoured to take up this new role shaping the way forward for the raw sector and the industry as a whole”. 

Michael Bellingham adds “PFMA has changed dramatically in the fifteen years I have been on board – membership has doubled from 40 to 85 members and we now have a series of dedicated sector groups such as the group for commercial raw producers. This reflects how the sector continues to innovate and grow; Greg comes on board at an exciting time as we continue our Pet Food Vision journey and plan for our 50-year anniversary celebrations in 2020”

The pet food industry is very mindful of the role it plays in the responsible use of resources, including minimising wherever possible the environmental impact of pet food production. Pets are part of the family and bring numerous benefits to society. Pets instil responsibility,
encourage social awareness, and contribute to wellbeing. As an industry, we have a responsibility to balance the needs of the population (pets and people) with protecting the environment for future generations.
