The AAFCO Pet Food and Specialty Pet Food Labeling Guide was developed in collaboration with feed control officials from different states and industry. The labeling guide provides information on the AAFCO Model Regulations for Pet Food and Specialty Pet Food as well as a uniform and consistent way of looking at claims on pet food labels. This is helpful for both feed control officials and industry so it is understood what may be accepted by regulators across the US.

The labeling guide has currently been updated with the new model regulations from the Pet Food Label Modernization (PFLM) project. The labeling guide covers claims such as Natural, Organic, Tartar Control and Human Grade/Quality statements as well as answering the question “What is a Claim?”. It also gives label examples and in depth information on the Pet Food Regulations such as Product Name and Ingredients, Descriptive Terms, Nutrients and Feed Ingredients.

With all the updates to the model regulations and updates in general since the latest 2016 version, this labeling guide is helpful for everyone who would like to stay current with labeling requirements whether you are looking to start a new treat or pet food business or for those companies with a long history in the pet food industry.
