XXIV Fefac congress to be held in Porto
Fefac's XXIV congress will be held on 13-17 June 2007
at the Fundação Serralves in Porto (Portugal). It will provide a perfect
opportunity for the European feed manufacturers to discuss the future of the
livestock sector in the new European Union.
The Fefac congress also allows to clearly show all partners in the chain how
the feed industry has become an indispensable partner to farmers and the food
and retail sector in providing solutions for the modern consumer "lifestyle and
healthy eating demands".
The 1st working session will be devoted to "The
new CAP and the WTO negotiations", the 2nd working session will tackle "The
simplification of the feed legislation", whereas the 3rd session will cover
"Risk Perception & Communication: The consumers' expectations and the
industry's response". Prominent speakers such as Mr Jaime Silva, Portuguese Farm
Minister and Mrs Catherine Geslain-Laneelle, Director of the European Food
Safety Agency (EFSA), have already confirmed their participation.

Associations in 20 EU Member States as well as Associations in Switzerland,
Turkey and Norway with observer/associate member status. The European compound
feed industry employs over 100,000 persons on app. 4,000 production sites often
