The Pet Industry Association of Australia (PIAA)

The Pet Industry Association is the only industry association in Australia created to represent all businesses in the pet industry.

Formed in 1979 as the PIJAC, we have evolved into a peak organization which aims to create an environment of best practice principles and ongoing learning for improved technology and systems in the pet industry.

The Pet Industry Association is run by members for its members and offers a voice for all who join by liaising with governments, animal welfare agencies, as well as pet and animal groups nationally and internationally.

We are represented on government steering committees, consultation and advisory groups on pet ownership and industry issues around Australia.
