Pet Food Production Line — Only at PROCESS EXPO!

For the first time, PROCESS EXPO will feature a dry kibble pet food production line. See firsthand how the equipment operates and how it connects to the next link in the supply chain.


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.

With the growth in pet food spending and tighter safety requirements instituted by the FDA, pet food and treat 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 and treat 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.

Watch a short video on how PROCESS EXPO can help you incorporate cutting-edge technology into your own facility.


New in 2019 — Preventive Controls for Animal Food Course

Developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA), the Preventive Controls for Animal Food Course is being made available in response to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) final rule issued for Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Food for Animals. Under the rule, covered animal food facilities are required to establish and implement an animal food safety system that includes an analysis of hazards and implementation of risk-based preventive controls. To do so, the rule requires a “preventive controls qualified individual” (PCQI) to develop and implement a written animal food safety plan for the facility. Completing this course meets the FSMA requirements for a “preventive controls qualified individual”.

The cost to attend the course is $650. This rates is significantly less for the same programs offered elsewhere as they are subsidized by PROCESS EXPO. Plus, when you sign up, you’ll receive access to the show floor and all PROCESS EXPO U sessions for FREE.
