PIF continues to refresh range of benefits for members

The Pet Industry Federation has launched two initiatives as part of its drive to improve its range of membership benefits and ensure that the organisation continues to provide relevant support to pet businesses. 


PIF has teamed up with energy broker, Utility Bidder, to help members access competitive gas, electricity and water rates for their businesses. Utility Bidder will scour the market to offer PIF members reduced costs for their business energy and provide an end-to-end service, making the switching process as easy as possible for businesses.


In addition, PIF has re-launched its legal helpline provision and partnered with established professional services company, Croner, to deliver legal, HR, tax and health and safety advice free of charge as part of membership. The benefit also includes free business seminars and free monthly webinars which members can attend. 


These two benefits come hot on the heels of a revised specialist insurance product for PIF members with leading insurance broker, Pet Business Insurance, which provides members with an additional 10% discount off PBI’s usual premiums and also includes £1,000 free veterinary cover as standard. 


Members will be able to access details about all these benefits through the online members’ portal  at, or they can telephone PIF customer service on 01234 273933.
