The NGFA has strategic alliances with respected organizations that benefit the industry:
- North American Export Grain Association (NAEGA), established in 1912, whose member companies ship virtually all U.S. bulk grain and oilseed exports. The NGFA and NAEGA are co-located and coordinate policy and government representation on trade-related issues.
- Pet Food Institute (PFI), whose members manufacture 98 percent of total U.S. dog and cat food, a nearly $20 billion industry. Since 1958, the Pet Food Institute has been the voice of U.S. pet food manufacturers. PFI is the industry’s public education and media relations resource, representative before the U.S. Congress and state and federal agencies, organizer of seminars and educational programs, and liaison with other organizations.NGFA works closely with PFI on public policy, issues management, communications and education programs to benefit the feed sector.
