Delacon has restructured its research and development, product management and innovation schemes. These previously separated teams are now united within a division called ‘product innovation’. While remaining the species leader for poultry, Dr Jan Dirk van der Klis has become the head of this new division and now directly reports to CEO Markus Dedl.
GLOBAL G.A.P. has recently teamed up with LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming), Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN), launched a joint initiative (The Declaration of Abu Dhabi) together with the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) platform and the International Trade Centre (ITC), and entered into partnerships with UNIVEG as well as REWE International AG.
These were the first steps undertaken in 2014 to counteract the ever growing number of duplicate audits around the world and to increase the incentives for farmers to adopt safe and sustainable production methods, which will be followed by further new partnership initiatives in the coming years.
