Food Export Buyers Missions are Unique, Curated Experiences that Maximize Your Time and Investment

Food Export-Midwest will be conducting a Petfood Ingredient Buyers Mission at the 2023 Petfood Forum. The Petfood Forum group of conferences and exhibitions are unique and exclusive events serving the global pet food manufacturing industry. They deliver the opportunity to learn the latest research and innovative information on pet nutrition, global pet food market growth, pet food safety, processing, packaging, and much more—all from leading, recognized pet food industry experts.

Global retail pet food sales reached another record high in 2020 as the trend away from table scraps continues in developing markets while consumers in more advanced markets shift to specialty and health-centered pet foods. 

This mission is the perfect low-cost opportunity to meet qualified buyers from around the world in one place!

Register early as meeting slots are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
