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

Food Export-Northeast in conjunction with the American Pet Products Association (APPA) will be conducting a Pet Food Buyers Mission at the 2023 Global Pet Expo. The annual Global Pet Expo is considered one of the pet industry's premier events featuring the newest, most innovative pet products on the market today. 

Global retail pet food sales reached another record high in 2021 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.
