Connecting with Customers in Latin America

A new middle class, urbanization, and the humanization of pets makes Latin America a region with high growth potential for pet food manufacturers. AFB International had the opportunity to participate in two valuable trade shows in this emerging market.


CIPAL 2019, September 18-19

Buenos Aires, Argentina

AFB participated in the Latin American Pet Food Industry Congress (CIPAL), held at the Catholic University of Argentina (UCA) in Buenos Aires. This was undoubtedly an important international meeting place – implementing new alliances, strategies and businesses, as well as gathering members of the Latin American pet food industry. The expo brought together over 600 visitors from across Latin America including leading international industry companies, world-class speakers and independent consultants. The conference program drew everyone’s attention for its quality, professionalism and diversity of topics. Technical questions about palatant applications, dosages and palatability tests were answered by our AFB team during the expo.


XVIII Congresso CBNA PET 2019, May 14-16

São Paulo, Brazil

Featuring over 112 exhibitors and 5,200 participants, AFB connected with Latin American customers and key members of the pet food industry as an exhibitor and also by hosting a Technology Workshop. Held in partnership with Maverick, a division of Wenger, the Workshop presented the science of petfood palatability and solutions provided by AFB, and the efficiency of the extrusion process. The Latin America technical and sales team had a great time assisting customers and gaining valuable insights during the show.
