PFMA Welcomes Four New Companies in to Membership

This month the Pet Food Manufacturers’ Association (PFMA) has welcomed four new diverse pet food companies in to membership.

The companies are: Poppy’s Picnic, the raw pet food company of Dragon’s Den fame; Paleo Ridge Raw, another member for the dedicated PFMA Raw Producers Group; Frozzys, producers of a lickable frozen yogurt for dogs and Thunderbrook pet food and treats.  This now brings PFMA membership to 85 companies which accounts for over 90% of the market.

Michael Bellingham, PFMA Chief Executive is delighted to welcome the new members onboard and advised: “PFMA offers a range of benefits to members including technical support, market data, networking and training events. We also have specific sector groups within PFMA, the Raw Producers Group for example have worked together to develop guidelines for best practice in the sector.”

“One of our most active groups at present is our Brexit Task Force which is making sure industry is in a strong position to deal with Brexit outcomes.” Michael continued.

 Louise Mackintosh, Director of Poppy’s Picnic, has jumped straight in to the PFMA Communications Committee taking part in her first strategy meeting recently: “Given the broad range of sectors in the pet food industry, it was hugely encouraging to see colleagues from diverse backgrounds come together for the common good – pet wellbeing. Being part of a collaborative committee and working together on projects has been fun and incredibly rewarding.”

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.
