Societal acceptance of livestock & feed production in the EU
In the first session, speakers from DG Sante and EFSA will share their outlook on creating a 'win-win' situation both for European Consumers and operators in the EU feed and food chain, paving the way for increased societal acceptance of modern sustainable feed and livestock production systems, based on the Circular economy approach, taking on board latest risk assessments at global and EU level on alternative feed ingredients, which could pave the way. Fefac experts, national regulators and key food chain partners will discuss their views and respective expectations and demands as regards the role of feed production in the circular economy.
It is with great pleasure that Fefac and Turkiyembir, representing the Turkish feed industry, invite members and EU feed chain partners to the XXVII Fefac Congress in Antalya, 21–22 April 2016, on the key conference theme 'Societal acceptance of livestock & feed production in the EU'.
The European Commission’s Circular Economy Package released in December 2015 provides a new holistic policy approach to a more resource-efficient food and feed chain management respecting both food & feed safety and environmental objectives.
In the wake of the COP21 agreement and its ambitious Climate Change targets, Michele Galatola from DG Envi, Pascal Gréverath from Nestlé, Nick Major from ForFarmers and Thomas Kaufmann from Evonik will discuss the new LCA tools that allow for the measurement of the environmental footprint of feed production and its impact on developing effective GHG emission mitigation strategies for livestock production.
In the final session, on the sourcing of responsible feed ingredients, Fefac shows it looks beyond the manufacturing sites of feed producers and has invested in building responsible supply chains. Maria Pilu Giraudo from Aapresid, Argentina, Carlo Lovatelli from Abiove, Brazil, and Brent Babb from USSEC, US, will showcase their efforts in the field of supplying responsible soy to the EU feed industry.
Fefac President, Mr Ruud Tijssens, and Turkiyembir President, Mr Ülkür Karakuş, look forward to welcoming you as guests in Antalya at the XXVII Fefac Congress. Your active participation to this event will provide the best guarantee that this event will succeed in generating new approaches on how to best present the feed industry’s contribution to safe & sustainable intensive livestock systems to be shared by Fefac members and its livestock sector partners. For the first time, Fefac’s Congress will be held in conjunction with the 5th Global Feed and Food Congress, co-hosted by IFIF, Fefac and Turkiyembir, in cooperation with FAO, 18–20 April 2016.
