The PFMA has launched a new Associate Membership category, which means that for the first time in 50 years, those working closely with the pet food sector can now apply to become an associate member.
The new membership category will reportedly help machinery and packaging companies, consultants, retailers, and various service providers who have been “keen to engage” with the association over the years.
The PFMA currently has 97 members including manufacturers and ingredients suppliers, and its members now account for over 90% of the UK pet food market.
Companies interested in Associate Membership can now build a package “suitable to their needs” selecting from a range of membership features.
Michael Bellingham, PFMA CEO, said: “We see this as a really positive move forward for the Association. It will mean greater networking, engagement and collaboration for those both directly involved and associated with the pet food industry.
“We have developed the Associate Membership package with a range of options to ensure inclusivity enabling organisations both small and large to get involved.”
