‘Treats, Toppers and Inclusions’ has been selected as the theme for the interactive 2018 Petfood R&D Showcase, focusing on the fastest growing sales categories in pet food.
 
This hands-on workshop takes place at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas on October 9-11. Registration is now open with early bird savings available.
 
“Pet treats, foods with inclusions and indulgence items to place on top of the pet’s food, referred to as toppers, are three market categories with huge potential,” said Greg Aldrich, research associate professor and co-ordinator for the pet food programme at Kansas State University. “These expanding segments are marketed as ways to supplement nutrition, enhance kibble-based products and to increase interaction between pet and human.”
