As a membership-driven organization, the American Feed Industry Association depends heavily on the dedication, commitment and involvement of its members to ensure the strength and success of the association's mission, objectives and programs. AFIA thanks these members, and their member companies, for their service, as many long-term projects are tackled annually due to their extra efforts.
"After much anticipation, AFIA welcomes and strongly supports the bipartisan Roberts/Stabenow agreement that would set a federal standard for the labeling of foods containing genetically engineered (GE) ingredients.
