Food Export will be conducting a Pet Food Buyers Mission in conjunction with the 2021 Global Pet Expo. The 2019 show reported record-breaking numbers with 7,029, representing 81 countries from around the world in attendance. Pet populations continue to grow around the world and particularly in developing countries. Global retail pet food sales are expected to reach another record 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. 

U.S. exports of dog and cat food packaged for retail set yet another record high in 2017 reaching over $1.373 billion, and growth of 5% over the $1.308 billion in 2016. So far through September of 2018 U.S. exports of the products has grown an impressive 9% on a year to date (YTD) basis and reached nearly $1.091 billion. That is nearly $100 million in value growth over September 2017. They remain one of the strongest export categories in processed food exports from the U.S. This is the perfect low-cost opportunity to meet qualified buyers from around the world in one place!
