IFIF/Fefana join forces to launch new Scientific Council

The International Feed Industry Federation (IFIF) and the EU Association of Specialty Feed Ingredients and their Mixtures (Fefana), today announced the launch of a Scientific Council of distinguished world-class experts who will serve as the expert advisory body of the IFIF/Fefana Specialty Feed Ingredients Sustainability Project (SFIS).

The SFIS project is designed to measure and establish the role of specialty feed ingredients on the environmental impact of livestock production and the Scientific Council will provide independent expert advice on the project during the course of the work in order to ensure scientifically robust inputs in the analysis and prepare the ground for a future peer reviewed publication of the project output once it is completed.

Prof. Dr. Matthias Finkbeiner, Chair of Sustainable Engineering at the Technical University Berlin and Chairman of the SFIS Scientific Council, welcomes the “involvement of globally renowned experts in such an important project, which aims to contribute to global activities in the area of the environmental effect of livestock production.” Prof. Finkbeiner added “the Members of the Council would provide expert review for results of the projects, which will be shared with international stakeholders and with feed chain operators in order to encourage more sustainable livestock production globally.”
