We are aware there has been some misinformation circulated about attending AAFCO meetings. Non-members—including industry representatives, consumers, consumer advocates, and members of the public—are welcome to attend AAFCO meetings, including our mid-year meeting in January. The registration form is available on AAFCO’s website. AAFCO members have priority access, and the remaining slots are available to other attendees, up to the meeting rooms’ maximum seating capacities.
AAFCO has restricted meeting access only for one pet food manufacturer, which is suing AAFCO, and a select few other individuals involved in the lawsuit because we are concerned that their presence may be disruptive to meeting business. Those few individuals were notified of AAFCO’s decision by email. All others are welcome to attend.
