I’m VERY happy to announce that Mr. B.C. Henschen will assume my former role as consumer advocate at AAFCO. Consumers will be in very good hands.
As readers here know, AAFCO removed me as consumer representative to the Pet Food Committee and the Ingredient Definitions Committee a few weeks ago. AAFCO removed me personally, but allowed our consumer association (Association for Truth in Pet Food) to appoint another consumer representative as advisor to committees. And I’m very happy to tell consumers that Mr. B.C. Henschen has agreed to take over my advisory position at AAFCO.
BC comes into this role with some very significant experience. BC and his wife Kathie own a pet food store in a small town in Indiana. He understands the significance of ‘food’ for pets and has worked for years educating his customers to the difference between feed and food, understanding ingredients, labels and so much more. In August of 2015, BC attended his first AAFCO meeting and has continued to attend meetings ever since. He’s been part of our meetings with FDA in the past. And BC was also part of our group who went to Washington D.C. to attend Pet Night on Capitol Hill a couple of months ago.
His daily work for years has been for consumers. Now he will be working for consumers on a national basis as Association for Truth in Pet Food advisor to the AAFCO Pet Food Committee and the Ingredient Definitions Committee. He’s smart, professional, and very dedicated. He will represent you well – I’m confident.
From the January 2017 AAFCO meeting…here’s a picture of ‘our’ guy…
Please know that I will continue to represent consumers at AAFCO, I will continue to attend every meeting and be as loud of a voice as I was in the past. AAFCO cannot stop me from attending and cannot stop me from voicing the concerns of consumers. BC will take over my role as AAFCO advisor, and I’ll still be at AAFCO on behalf of all consumers.
If you are not a member of Association for Truth in Pet Food (our consumer association), please consider becoming a member. The Association is how we hold a voice as advisor at AAFCO. And the Association now needs to send two people to expensive AAFCO meetings…we need your support.
My sincere thank you to BC. I know without doubt consumers are in good hands with you.
The next AAFCO meeting is January 22, 2018 in Anaheim, CA. BC and I both will be there fighting for pet food consumer rights.
Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
