PFMA Launches Nutrition Course for Tailored Member Companies

PFMA Launches Nutrition Course for Tailored Member Companies

PFMA now runs a tailormade nutrition course for members

PFMA Launches Nutrition Course for Tailored Member Companies

In the early summer, the Pet Food Manufacturers’ Association (PFMA) held it’s very first pet food nutrition course tailored for members. The training was a two-day residential course delivered by industry experts and academics. A range of topics were covered including, species-specific animal nutrition, manufacturing methods, pet food labelling and pet food legislation.

As a result of the high demand from members, a second course has been set for October. PFMA has longer term ambitions to extend this to a wider audience as there has been a strong interest from retailers.

Sarah Hormozi, PFMA Science & Education Manager advises: “We are delighted to have this course up and running. We consulted our members widely when developing the programme, to ensure it is tailored to the pet food manufacturers’ needs. We believe the course will contribute to our ever-increasing industry standards and will bring additional value to our membership.”

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.
