Kansas City, Missouri – March 20, 2018 – Food Export Association USA – Northeast, in partnership with Petfood Industry magazine, will be conducting the first ever Pet Food Ingredient Buyers Mission at the 2018 Petfood Forum.

Serving the global pet food manufacturing industry, Petfood Forum is scheduled for April 23-25, 2018 in Kansas City, Missouri, USA.

The Pet Food Ingredient Buyers Mission is an exclusive program connecting qualified buyers with ingredient suppliers during the three-day conference and exhibition.

Participating buyers include pet food manufacturing companies located in China, Colombia, Mexico and Vietnam. They have been vetted for their purchasing power and interest in pet food ingredients from supplier organizations who will be present at Petfood Forum.

“We are excited to bring qualified, international buyers to Petfood Forum. This new program provides a unique opportunity for suppliers to build relationships and drive sales with ingredient buyers from around the world in one place,” said Steve Akins, executive vice president, global petfood/events for WATT Global Media. “The Buyers Mission also provides exclusive insights into demand and market-specific growth opportunities.”

Participating buyers include: Navarch Petcare Inc. from China; Premex S.A.S from Columbia; Multiservicios 2001 S.A de C.V from Mexico; and Minh Quan Import Export Investment Service Company Limited from Vietnam.
