The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) will host a half-day meeting on “Exporting Feed and Feed Ingredients to the US” at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), to be held next January in the US city Atlanta.
The educational programme will provide knowledge about the complex process of exporting feed and feed ingredients into the United States.
Gina Tumbarello, AFIA director of international policy and trade, will lead the programme, focusing on topics such as US.
Feed/Feed Ingredient Import Trends, APHIS: Exporting Animal and Plant Products to the US and Exporting FDA-regulated Products to the US.
Leah Wilkinson, AFIA director of ingredients, pet food and state affairs, and Richard Sellers, AFIA senior vice president of legislative and regulatory affairs, will also join the discussion to provide an update on the Food Safety and Modernisation Act (FSMA) and present on the US feed regulatory system. “The re-proposed FSMA rules have a direct effect on the feed industry by creating major changes to the regulations of feed, feed ingredients and imports,” said Wilkinson. “Understanding how to be in compliance with the proposed requirements comes hand-in-hand with understanding the current complexity of importing feed ingredients to the US.”
