The appointment was announced at its recent AGM at the end of March.
Robinson-Davies has previously been a representative on the PFMA executive committee and chair of the sustainability committee. Sustainability will be a focal point for Claire’s two-year tenure.
She said: “As a responsible industry, environmental sustainability continues to be high on the PFMA’s agenda. We also know pet owners want to feed their pets in a way that respects and protects the environment for future generations.
“We are working closely with the government and other organisations to ensure we address common challenges, including sustainable raw materials, environmentally friendly production, and recyclable packaging materials.”
Michael Bellingham, PFMA chief executive, added: “Claire joins a strong chair team with Greg Van Praagh (Benyfit Natural) as past chair and Anna Horrell (Goldline Feeds) as vice chair. Work is already underway for an action packed two years ahead.”
