Petfood Essentials is an interactive, informal educational pre-conference seminar, held the day prior to the commencement of Petfood Forum.

Petfood Essentials 2025 is scheduled for April 28, at the Kansas City Convention Center.

Each year, the pre-conference seminar offers a new theme where experts share knowledge about the unique benefits and challenges of producing and marketing pet food or treats in key areas like nutrition, processing, packaging, distribution, retailing, safety and testing. Throughout the day, participants will enjoy a fun, interactive group exercise, culminating in a competition. Bragging rights are on the line!

Set the foundation for your entire Petfood Forum experience with more education and more networking, in an informal setting.
