What Will the Program Cover?

From FDA:

The FDA will host a virtual summit October 19–21, 2021, to convene industry and consumer experts, government officials, stakeholders, and other interested parties for a discussion and exchange of perspectives about the safety of human and animal foods produced, manufactured, sold, and delivered directly to consumers through e-commerce. Summit participants will discuss the regulatory framework that apply to these foods and ways to strengthen food safety. More specifics, including information on how to register for the summit will follow in the Federal Register and on the FDA website.

We encourage anyone who is currently selling animal food via e-commerce or wishes to do so in the future to attend this summit to learn more about the regulatory standards that apply to these animal foods. 


There is no cost to attend the summit, but you must register online. If you have questions about this event, contact Juanita Yates, FDA, Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.
