Petfood Research and Development Showcase

October 10-11, 2018, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS

Participate in a fun and relaxed learning environment where you use your hands, your nose and all your senses when you attend the Petfood Research and Development Showcase on October 10-11, 2018, at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas.

This multi-day event is a joint industry-academic venture with Petfood Forum and Kansas State University to promote innovation, research and talent development focused on pet food and pet treat manufacturing. The Petfood Research and Development Showcase is hosted by the Kansas State Pet Food Program Team, and utilizes student volunteers as well as facilities within the community.

Participants will hear the latest on market trends and research regarding pet treats, foods with inclusions, and indulgence items, which are the fastest growing categories in pet food. The intent is to provide participants with interactive, engaging, and in some applications hands-on experiences with new technologies for producing these extra-nutritional food forms. Register here.
