The Pet Food Manufacturers’ Association (PFMA) has announced the creation of a new ‘Raws Group’. It will focus on issues of interest to commercial raw producers.
Seven companies within the sector will be joining the group, including long-standing PFMA member, Natures Menu, and six new members.
The Raws Group includes:
- Benyfit Natural pet food
- Durham Animal Feed
- Honeys Real Dog Food (The Darling Experiment Ltd)
- Natural Instinct
- Natures Menu
- Nutriment Ltd
- TPMS Animal Feeds
The group may continue to expand, as the PFMA has noted growing interest from other producers.
Raws Group will gather market data to provide a gauge of market value for the sector. It also aims to work through PFMA to extend the current FEDIAF Guide to Good Practice for the Manufacture of Safe Pet Food to provide sector specific guidance for raw producers.
Michael Bellingham, PFMA Chief Executive advises: ‘The timing is just right to have this group on board and we welcome our new members. There is an appetite for more information on raw feeding; we see this from our discussions with both vets and retailers. Working with this group we hope to address this. We will work with the Raws Group to provide more information on our website and we look forward to getting them involved in our pet nutrition seminars for pet care professionals.”
