Education at Feed Expo 2009

The American Feed Industry Association is once again featuring dynamic educational programs at the International Feed Expo/International Poultry Expo, Jan. 27-30, 2009, in Atlanta, USA.

Three programs will feature the following strategic concepts: achieving sustainability, enhancing companies' asset values, building a high performance team and optimizing technology.

The Pet Food Regulatory and Technical Conference  will focus on understanding emerging trends in the pet food industry, Jan. 27-28, 2009.

The program will feature two concurrent sessions addressing:

  • The rapidly changing regulatory environment and
  • Technical issues related to the pet food industry.

    AFIA and the Poultry Protein and Fat Council will host a cocktail hour immediately following the afternoon sessions, and the conference will conclude with a general session the next day.

    Among others Dan McChesney of the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Veterinary Medicine, Willem Penning of the European Commission, Pierre Stang of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency will present a paper.

    Environment and sustainability
    A new addition to the IFE/IPE educational lineup is the Animal Agriculture Environmental Sustainability Summit.

    The event will feature prominent experts from animal agriculture and representatives from the retail and food service industries.

    One session will have success stories from companies that have developed their sustainability programs from the ground up.

    A second session will feature customer sustainability efforts presented by invited speakers from Wal-Mart and McDonald's. Representatives from Tyson and Smithfield also will be on hand to give an inside look at the importance of corporate sustainability efforts.

    The agenda and speakers are still being arranged, so continue to visit the agenda   for updates.

    All three programs are free to IFE/IPE attendees. To register to attend the Expo event, visit the IFE/IPE website. The pre-registration fee is $30 for online registration and $40 for registration via mail or fax. After Jan. 5, 2009, you buy your Expo pass at the door for $50.
