PFMA delighted with positive member feedback

New survey taken by PFMA members[i] confirms reasons why pet food manufacturers value the trade body.  An impressive 100% confirmed the effectiveness of PFMA as overarching industry representative[ii].  The most valuable benefits of membership were ranked as:

·         Technical support 94%

·         Increased credibility 92%

·         Committees and Working Groups 85%

·         Lobby Influence 83%

·         Networking 81%

·         Educational Material 79%

Deputy Chief Executive, Nicole Paley, responds to this feedback: “PFMA represents over 90% of the UK pet food industry with 85 companies in membership. Over the last 15 years, PFMA membership has doubled and diversified - we now have dedicated working groups focusing on feed for birds, fish and a group of commercial raw producers."

Nicole continues: "With this growth and diversification, we are delighted to have received such positive feedback after an extremely busy year.  As a small team, we have had to balance our increased focus on Brexit with ‘business as usual’ so it’s testimony to the hard work of the team and the ongoing commitment of our members that our technical support, ongoing working groups and educational material has been so highly valued."

The pet food industry: Playing a part in sustainability and reducing carbon emissions

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.
