The American Feed Industry Association’s (AFIA) free Feed Education Program returns to the International Production & Processing Expo to update attendees on recent changes within several federal agencies and to provide an outlook for the animal food industry for 2022.

The two-hour program, to be held January 26, 2022, is designed for animal food facility managers and operations and mill personnel looking to learn about the latest regulatory requirements impacting their businesses.

“With such a rollercoaster of a year from a new presidential administration to fresh waves of COVID-19 outbreaks in 2021, there was a lot coming out of regulatory agencies which the animal food industry must keep up with,” says Gary Huddleston, AFIA’s director of feed manufacturing and regulatory affairs.

“The AFIA Feed Education Program will keep industry stakeholders informed of potential changes in regulations.”

The program’s featured speaker will focus on the importance of a written pandemic policy. The agenda also includes updates on what the industry can expect to see in 2022 from the Food and Drug Administration, including inspection plans; the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, such as new workforce requirements; and the Environmental Protection Agency, such as new climate regulations.

In addition to the educational portion of the program, AFIA will provide an update on the Feed Facility of the Year (FFY) program and name the winner of the 2021 Commercial FFY, as well as discuss new educational tools for feed manufacturers.

The free AFIA Feed Education Program will be held from 8-10 a.m. ET on Jan. 26, 2022.
