programs, to name a few. Additionally, NGFA manages an Arbitration System, where industry members
can settle trade and rail disputes without going to
court. NGFA's website includes several Food Safety
Modernization Act (FSMA) resources, including
exemptions, guidance documents and an online hazard assessment for the animal food rule, as well as

Current priorities of the association include
advocating for the ratification of the US-MexicoCanada Agreement (USMCA) and other beneficial

keeping companies informed about the US Food

of FSMA inspections.
NGFA maintains strategic alliances with Pet Food
Institute (PFI), as well as the North American Export
Grain Association (NAEGA). It's partnership with
PFI is based on public policy, issues management,
communications about pet food and feed and education programs to benefit members of those industries. It also is the basis of the annual Feed and Pet
Food Joint Conference, hosted by NGFA and PFI.
Additionally, NGFA works with 29 state and regional
grain and feed associations.
NGFA established the National Grain and Feed
Foundation in 1965 to fund education and research
initiatives in the grain and feed processing industries.
The foundation's recent projects include safety training modules, a digital FSMA Hazard-Assessment Tool,
regional safety seminars and feed quality assurance
videos that provide training for employees and new
hires. The association also hosts two programs for
young professionals to become active with NGFA
and more involved in the industry: NextGen and the
