PFAC represents both pet food and treat manufacturers and suppliers to the industry, including ingredient, equipment, and service providers. See a list of our current members here.
PFAC is a dynamic association with a small team of professional staff dedicated to supporting members in their goal to provide wholesome, nutritious food for all our pets while growing their business.
We are recognized as the voice of the pet food industry with government officials and the various departments with which we work. We have strong relationships with CFIA, both import and export and animal products groups, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, the Market Access Secretariat, Global Affairs Canada, and the Trade Commissioner Service, among others.
Besides advocacy and regulatory support with direct lines to government, PFAC can also provide your company with a global presence and expertise as a founding member of the Global Alliance of Pet Food Associations (GAPFA). We provide regular information on key and emerging issues, direct support on individual or industry challenges, and networking opportunities.
Our link with the Trade Commissioner Service allows access to market intelligence and statistics, market specific webinars, events, and sales leads.
To be eligible for a manufacturing membership, a company must have been in business for at least one year and must follow a recognized food safety program as well as AAFCO nutritional guidelines. Maintaining a high standard of manufacturing is important to maintain the credibility and impact of the association. To be considered for a supplier membership, your company has to supply a product or service to pet food manufacturers.
