Meetings of the Alliance for Research and Innovation in the Rendering and Pet Food Industries

The second meeting of the Alliance for Research and Innovation in the Rendering and Pet Food Industries (PFA) was held in December of 2017. This meeting brought members of the pet food, rendering, and meat industries together with academic partners to discuss opportunities and challenges in the pet food and rendering industries. In this meeting (summary CSU FPRF Alliance-December Meeting Summary), Alliance members organized working groups to work on targeted issues and will work on those issues within their working groups in the first quarter of 2018.
