About

What is ANAC?

The Animal Nutrition Association of Canada (ANAC) is the national trade association of the Canadian livestock feed industry. Originally formed in 1929 under the name Canadian Feed Manufacturers’ Association, ANAC has been representing the feed industry for nearly 100 years.

ANAC advocates on behalf of the feed industry with government regulators and policy-makers to foster a favourable business environment for its members.

The association is managed by a small staff in Ottawa and governed by a volunteer board of directors. The board consists of a 4-person executive committee and 13 other directors from across Canada, representing both regular and associate member companies. Members of the board are elected for a two-year term at the association’s annual general meeting held in the spring of each year.
