PET Food Processing - October 2021 - 6

OFF THE LEASH
Pooling
resources
Initially funded by the rendering industry's Fats and Protein
Research Foundation, the Pet Food Alliance brings together
the rendering industry with the pet food industry to capture
opportunities and tackle challenges common to both.
In September, the Pet Food Alliance held it's first in-person
meeting since 2019. The technical conference's registration
fees help fund research that the alliance identifies as needed
by both industries. The mechanism used to identify what's
needed is the working group.
The overarching premise of the Pet Food Alliance is
through communication and collaboration invested members
can make progress on some of the more challenging puzzles
impacting both industries.
Jennifer Martin, Ph.D., assistant professor, Center for
Meat Safety and Quality, Department of Animal Sciences at
Colorado State University, facilitated the conference and leads
the Pet Food Alliance. She said research that is fundamentally
guided by members' input is the focus of the association.
" The whole idea behind the Pet Food Alliance is to literally
sit at the same table and talk about ways we can work together
to address industry wide challenges, " Martin explained. " The
momentum and the value in the quality and safety of ingredients
that are used in pet food and the quality and safety of
pet food products is only going to grow, " Martin added. " The
need and opportunity for us to have critical conversations is
higher than ever. "
The current focus of Pet Food Alliance's working groups
includes food safety, product quality and industry sustainability.
During the conference, working groups met and
identified priorities that ranged from requests for proposals
for identified research opportunities to resource needs that
ranged from identifying industry standards for common
product evaluation methods, centralized databases for existing
research and technical information, tutorial videos and
unified promotional messaging needed
to support the pet food and rendering
industries.
If you have challenges you aren't able
to address alone or non-competitive
data or research that could benefit the
industry as a whole, you might consider
pooling your resources with other
invested parties in the pet food and rendering industries to
help move the needle forward. The Pet Food Alliance is planning
it's next meeting for early 2022.
