These pets are more than animals sharing our homes, they are viewed as members of the family and valued companions.

For most pets commercially prepared foods forms the sole source of nutrition. Therefore, consumers expect high standards of quality, nutrition and value.

Members of the NZPFMA are committed to providing consumers and their pets with products that meet the complex nutritional requirements of our companion animals. Petfood manufacturers are always working to increase their knowledge of pet nutrition ensuring the food is palatable and healthy.
