Pet Food and Specialty Pet Food Labeling Workshop

The AAFCO Pet Food and Specialty Pet Food Labeling Workshop is designed to enable control officials, individuals from the pet food and specialty pet food industry, and others to better understand and interpret the AAFCO Model Regulations for Pet Food and Specialty Pet Food. This 1½ day workshop covers both the basics of pet and specialty pet food labeling as well as more complex issues such as product claims. A good understanding of the AAFCO Model Regulations is essential to any firm wishing to market pet foods and specialty pet foods, treats, and supplements in the United States.
