About PFI

The Pet Food Institute and our members, who make 98% of all U.S. pet food and treat products, are committed to helping dogs and cats live long and healthy lives. As the voice of U.S. pet food makers for nearly 60 years, we provide factual information about pet food and treat safety, nutrition, and health to pet lovers, and advocate for a transparent, science-based regulatory environment for our members.

PFI is dedicated to:

  • Advocating for legislation, regulations and technologies that support the domestic manufacture and global distribution of safe, quality pet food and that provide for consumer choice;
  • Promoting pet food safety innovation in manufacturing and handling practices;
  • Delivering information about issues impacting pet food makers, their suppliers and distributors, pet lovers and other relevant stakeholders; and
  • Communicating the benefits of pet ownership to the general public at large.

Our offices are based in Washington, DC. Click here to learn more about PFI.
