Between October of this year and August of 2020, at least five events will bring the Brazilian market and foreign buyers together.
São Paulo, September, 2019 – The Instituto Pet Brasil has released the calendar of business events for the second half of 2019 and 2020.
“In addition to representing pet sector companies throughout Brazil, the IPB also invests in training for the sector. Not only do we organize pavilions and business roundtables in the country and abroad, but we also offer programs to make our companies more competitive, both in price and quality,” explains José Edson Galvão de França, president of the organization.
Examples include the Pet Brazil Sector Project, which enables Brazilian companies in the sector to participate in international business roundtables, fairs and market research. PDI Pet is a joint initiative of IPB and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil), which helps domestic companies become more competitive, both in the Brazilian market and abroad. The program evaluates the maturity of each company according to criteria on managerial and operational capacity.
