Reflecting on the event, Rosa Carbonell, FEDIAF's President, confirmed, 'It was an enlightening afternoon with fantastic speakers, and the interactive Q&A session highlighted the importance of safeguarding pet food ingredients for the future. In the Pet Food Industry, feed additives play a critical role, underscoring the necessity of an easily navigable authorization process to ensure the production of safe, balanced food for Europe's 352 million pets.'
