20/04/14: Final days to 2nd Global Milling Conference opportunities

It's not too late to join the 2nd Global Milling Conference in Bangalore, India, which runs over a day-and-a-half this coming week (from April 23-24, 2014). This event will incorporate the on-going concept of 'CropTech-FeedTech' - a two-hour debate on critical feed manufacturing issues that forms part of our main sponsor's activity at VIV exhibitions. And it is an ideal networking opportunity!


The program below is focused clearly on how millers - from flour to cereals to rice and feed - are playing a central role in meeting the food needs of the current rapid growth in population which the world is experiencing.

This international event is being jointly hosted in India between GFMT and Assocom as India represents one in every seven people on the planet and is representative of the challenge we now face.

Join us in Bangalore and join the debate - on how we satisfy increasing food demand with safe and affordable products. For every mouth that ends the day hungry suggests our industry is failing to meet that need!
PS: Many thanks to the program organisers at Assocom India for putting together an impressive list of VIP speakers related to milling addressing critical issues!
