Since 1993, PFI has sponsored export promotion activities by participating in USDA’s Market Access Program, a grant program administered by the USDA that helps U.S. producers to promote U.S. agricultural commodities and products worldwide. Grants given for this program are matched on a percentage basis by the executing organizations and the industry as a whole. The PFI Market Access Program helps to educate pet lovers about the importance of nutrition for cats and dogs.

The PFI Market Access Program is currently active in 8 markets:

  • Mexico
  • Caribbean (Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago)
  • Central America (Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Panama)
  • China
