Feed regulatory information for livestock production farmers and ranchers, pet owners, veterinarians and other animal professionals.

How AAFCO Helps the Consumer

While AAFCO doesn't help consumers directly, AAFCO has clearly stated in its philosophy regarding feed regulations in the Official Publication that “The most important aspect of feed regulation is to provide protection for the consumer as well as the regulated industry. A major function of feed regulations is to safeguard the health of man and animals. Another important function of feed regulation is to provide a structure for orderly commerce."

We also use expert nutrition opinions to establish nutrient standards (profiles) for dogs and cats.

Pet Food is directly regulated by the States and by FDA.

If you have concerns about a specific product you should contact your state regulator or FDA.
