PFMA to offer ‘Pet Food and Nutrition Course’ to non-members

Following two successful events in June and October 2019, the Pet Food Manufacturing Association (PFMA) has announced it will offer its Pet Food and Nutrition Course to non-members.

In 2019, the PFMA launched its first residential training course covering several aspects of pet food production, species-specific animal nutrition and labelling and marketing regulations.

During the two-days training course PFMA, in collaboration with independent industry experts, provide a range of lectures and workshops to give an overview of the UK pet food industry.

Course content includes:

  • UK and EU markets overview
  • Pet nutrition (dogs, cats, small mammals and pet birds)
  • Manufacturer of safe pet food
  • Quality assessment and measurement
  • Palatability
  • Legislation on raw materials, additives, finished goods and manufacturing
  • Product labelling and marketing regulations

The PFMA said: “Each round of the course has a maximum capacity of only 30 attendees to allow for a “high-quality” training that engages the participants in discussions and workshop activities.”
