Kumprecht elected honory member at Fefac

At the occasion of the 57th Annual General Meeting of the European Feed Manufacturers’ Federation (Fefac) in Liège, the Fefac General Assembly elected Mr Marek Kumprecht as Honorary Member.

Kumprecht has been elected for his exceptional dedication and personal commitment to expand regional cooperation and membership in Central and Eastern European countries for the benefit of the European feed industry.

He convinced the Czech feed industry to become the first Fefac member from the new EU candidate countries in 2000. He organised the ground-breaking EU TAIEX/Fefac workshop for all EU candidate countries in Prague in 2002, opening a series of 15 bilateral and regional workshops on EU feed safety legislation resulting in membership applications of 12 national feed associations from the new EU Member States, EU candidate and neighbouring countries. His inimitable personal style blending highest professional ethics and diplomatic skills, seasoned with a good dose of Czech humour, have made him the perfect ambassador helping to reshape Fefac's membership landscape.

Mr Kumprecht holds a Master of Science (MSc) in Animal Nutrition and serves as Sales & Marketing Manager at Royal De Heus, a.s. Before that, he was Managing Director at Afeed, a.s. and Trouw Nutrition Biofaktory, sro. He is the 8th holder of the title of Fefac Honorary Member since the Federation was founded in 1959, following Mr Hubert Marek, Prof. Marcel van Belle, Mr Carl Brenninkmeyer, Mr André Namur, Mr Franz-Josef Juchem, Mr Giordano Veronesi, Dr Helen Raine.
