Filling knowledge gaps for the animal feed and pet food industry.


IFEEDER’s agenda is simple: to transparently provide data and information so stakeholders can make good decisions about feed and pet food. Since 2009, IFEEDER has been developing resources that help the U.S. animal food industry better communicate its story to corporate decision-makers and stakeholders looking for credible science and facts on where their feed and pet food comes from.
