The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) is hosting an interactive training and question-and-answer session with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).

Titled, “Facility Inspection Package Training by USDA-APHIS,” attendees will hear directly from APHIS staff on how to better prepare export health certificate packets and ready their facilities for inspections.

The training will take place on January 25, 2023, in conjunction with the 2023 International Production & Processing Expo, occurring January 24-26 in Atlanta.

“Anyone who is preparing export certificates or facility inspections for rendered products, animal-based feed or pet food, will find this program to be valuable,” said Mallory Gaines, AFIA’s director of market access and trade policy.

“Members will have the opportunity to engage directly with representatives from the APHIS field staff and the Riverdale headquarters staff.”

The program will provide an overview of the agency and trade facilitation, a training on facility inspection packages and convene breakout sessions with APHIS staff.
