As a manufacturer or distributor of ingredients used in feed and pet food manufacturing facilities, being knowledgeable about the Food Safety Modernization Act and how your company is impacted by these regulations is important. As a member of the American Feed Industry Association, you will be kept up-to-date on the rules and changes through educational programs, newsletters and webinars.
In addition, you can be listed on the AFIA Online Buyer's Guide – another avenue for members and non-members to find out more about your products and services.
AFIA also hosts the annual Purchasing and Ingredient Suppliers Conference – a place where business truly gets done. This is an educational and, more importantly, a networking event, designed by your peers, specifically for companies like yours. It is a chance to learn about what’s happening with the industry, think strategically about the future and talk with other suppliers and customers alike.
AFIA hosts the largest annual international trade show for the feed, pet food, poultry and meat industry – the International Production & Processing Expo. This annual event is held in late January in Atlanta, Ga. More than 32,000 attendees and 1,200 exhibitors are there every year. As a member of AFIA, you will receive a discount on your booth space.
