Pure Processing. Premium Technology.

With the growth in pet food spending and tighter safety requirements instituted by the FDA, pet food manufacturers will find serious value in attending PROCESS EXPO, where thousands of food and beverage processors exchange ideas and discover new technology in manufacturing. The crossover of market segments at the show provides all food processors, including pet food processors, solutions that can be applied to their plants and businesses.

Pet food makers must abide by strict safety procedures, which they can learn about in the PROCESS EXPO food safety education sessions as well as via demonstrations from suppliers on the show floor. New technology and sophisticated equipment used to monitor production processes can be found and compared across suppliers in one place at one time.

Come to PROCESS EXPO to learn preventative food safety measures and to see how you can streamline your operations to gain a competitive advantage in the large pet food market.
