Juchem honorary member of Fefac

At the occasion of the 24th Congress of the European Feed Manufacturers' Federation (Fefac) in Porto, the Fefac General Assembly elected Franz Josef Juchem as honorary member.

Franz Josef Juchem, Managing Director of the Juchem Group, is a man of the first hour, who accompanied Fefac from its very beginnings and shaped its activity leaving his mark on the organisation.

Over the past forty years he made use of his entrepreneurial skills and experience within the Fefac work, thus acquiring extraordinary merits to the benefit of the European compound feed manufacturing industry.

Since 1996, he holds the mandate of Fefac Treasurer and in 1997 he was elected vice-president.

Since he entered the family company in 1952, Franz Josef Juchem received a series of public distinctions, bespeaking of his voluntary commitment.

In 2007, he notably will receive the honorary title "Officier du Mérite Agricole" by the French Minister for Agriculture.

In 2003, the Saarland Prime Minister awarded him the title "Economic Counsellor" as a reward for his remarkable achievements in the field of agriculture and in 1991 he received the "Bundesverdienstkreuz"-award.

Franz Josef Juchem is only the 5th holder of the title of Fefac Honorary Member since the Federation was founded in 1959, following Prof. Marcel van Belle, Hubert Marek, Carl Brenninkmeyer and André Namur.
