    Pet Food Regulatory Update Meeting at Global Pet Expo on Set-Up Day: Have Lunch and Find Out What’s New

    market access & association seminarsTuesday, March 2012:00 PM - 1:30 PM Room W202C

    Dr David Dzanis, APPA’s Pet Food Nutritionist

    APPA will be hosting a meeting for Pet Food and Treat Manufacturers to discuss the latest regulatory updates for pet food and treats. Stop by for lunch and hear Dr David Dzanis, APPA’s Pet Food Nutritionist, speak about the newest regulatory trends that are being discussed by AAFCO and the FDA, which may impact your requirements. 

    One of the important “hot” topics that Dr Dzanis will be talking about will be efforts by AAFCO toward "Pet Food Labeling Modernization."  AAFCO wants to revamp the labels to be more akin to human food labeling.  This will likely include replacing the guaranteed analysis and calorie content statement with a "Pet Nutrition Facts Box."  There will also likely be changes as to how nutritional adequacy will be declared on the label, how ingredients can be declared, and new needs for safe handling directions.  Although this is a monumental task, it is being fast-tracked (at least, very fast compared to most regulatory matters).   Also likely to come up include the status of "human grade" claims, and a proposal to amend the dental claim guidance.

    There is no need to register for this meeting and it is open to all APPA members.
