Robinson-Davies formerly held the position as chair of the sustainability committee in the executive branch. She intends to commit to sustainable pet food producing in her new position.
“As a responsible industry, environmental sustainability continues be high on the PFMA’s agenda,” Robinson-Davies said. “We also know pet owners want to feed their pets in a way that respects and protects the environment for future generations. We are working closely with government and other organizations to ensure we address common challenges, including sustainable raw materials, environmentally friendly production, and recyclable packaging materials.“
“Supporting our members in their decarbonization journeys is particularly critical, which is why we recently embarked on an exciting project looking at the sustainability of key pet food ingredients,” Robinson-Davies added. “We look forward to sharing the results later this summer. I am excited and honored to take up this role and to help shape the way forward for our industry.”
