The 10th annual International Feed Regulators Meeting (IFRM) organised by the International Feed Industry Federation (IFIF) in cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) brought together feed industry representatives and government officials from around the world to discuss critical issues facing the feed sector with IFIF and the FAO.
“I am delighted we had a record number of participants from across the world and from key regulatory bodies join us at the 10th IFRM. This meeting, yet again, proved to be an important opportunity for the global feed industry and feed regulators to discuss key issues for the feed and food chain, including Feed Safety Risk Management Strategies, as well as programmes on capacity development for feed safety.
Mr. Newman added “This dialogue is an important example of the private sector collaborating with the FAO and regulators from around the world and we believe that only by working together can we continue to ensure feed and food safety, while meeting the global demands for food sustainably.”
“The success of this meeting is a proof that FAO efforts to facilitate dialogue between the public and private sector are worthwhile,” said Daniela Battaglia, Livestock Development Officer at the Animal Production and Health Division of the FAO. Ms. Battaglia added “Feed operators can valuably contribute to make the livestock and food sectors more responsible and sustainable and to achieve other important goals such as food security, public health, and animal health and welfare. The IFRM is an important opportunity to exchange ideas among stakeholders from around the world and to coordinate our efforts towards common goals."
