KANSAS CITY, MO. — Pet Food Processing (PFP) will launch its first podcast, More Than Kibble, on March 22. The program will share conversations with the best and brightest in the pet food and treat processing industry. Listeners will have the chance to learn about challenges facing today’s processors and suppliers, evolving industry trends, and opportunities to improve the formulation, production and food safety of dog and cat food.

The PFP editorial team — Editor Kimberlie Clyma, Digital Media Editor Jordan Tyler and Digital Media Associate Editor Nicole Kerwin — will share insights from a wide range of podcast guests, as they speak to the topics, issues and concerns of the pet food industry at large.

Pet Food Processing has been serving the pet food and treat industry since the magazine started in 2018,” said Dave Crost, publisher of PFP. “The goal of our print publication and our website and social media platforms has always been to help manufacturers prepare for the future. Our new podcast will provide our audience with a new platform to learn about the industry.”

In the first episode of More Than Kibble, Clyma will talk to Tony Moses, Ph.D., director of product innovation and a fellow at CRB, a Kansas City, Mo.-based provider of sustainable engineering, architecture, construction and consulting to the food and beverage industries. Moses will share insights from CRB’s Horizons Pet Food report, including capital spending trends, sustainability efforts, production challenges and packaging innovations. 

“The Horizons Pet Food report takes a deep dive into the pet food processing industry examining where the industry is today, and where it’s headed in the future,” Clyma said. “My conversation with Tony will highlight some of the report’s findings and will help processors look ahead to where they can carry their businesses in the coming years.”

More Than Kibble will be available to listen on a range of applications, including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify and more. It will also be accessible on petfoodprocessing.net. To preview the series, listen to the clip above.
