Pet Food Trade

Canada is a nation known for its agriculture and natural resources.  Canadian pet food draws from the variety and quality ingredients available in the agri-food sector to create some of the world’s safest, and highest quality pet food. 

Canadian pet food is well known around the world, and because of this manufacturers export to almost 90 countries.  The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) oversees both import and export of pet food.  On the export side, the CFIA inspects facilities, negotiates export certificates, and ensures compliance to foreign rules and regulations.  For imports, the CFIA ensures that ingredients and finished products are originating from countries and facilities that have been assessed and meeting their local and Canadian requirements.

Pet food trade has grown significantly in the past few years, and as an essential sector, PFAC members have continued to provide food and treats for your pets and those around the globe, no matter what is happening in the world.
