PFMA members are welcome to join several committees that serve the best interests of Pennsylvania’s food industry. Committee members are updated on issues through PFMA staff and may be asked to contact legislators and/or state officials about food industry concerns. All committees meet throughout the year to review current legislation impacting the industry, discuss how to deal with these issues and suggest direction for the PFMA Government Relations Department.
