Fefac stages 25th congress in Hamburg, Germany

In cooperation with the German animal feed industry body DVT the european feed manufacturers united in Fefac stages its 25th congress in Hamburg with a focus on “Sustainable competitiveness of the EU livestock and feed sector.”

Sustainability is everybody’s favourite – and a challenge for the EU feed and food chain stakeholders and market partners.
Moreover, it is a key issue in the political debate: The EU Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS) sets up a framework for a long-term vision taking account of environmental protection, economic prosperity, social cohesion and global responsibility.
The EU livestock and feed sector is fully committed to contribute to this agenda in participating in different initiatives, such as the EU Food Chain Round Table on Sustainable Consumption and Production and the Global Round Table on Responsible Soy.
Hamburg venue
The XXV Fefac Congress on “Sustainable competitiveness of the EU livestock and the feed industry” to be held on 9-11 June 2010 in Hamburg addresses these issues and initiatives by providing a platform for dialogue between political decision-makers and feed & food chain partners.
The Congress programme deals with the economic analysis of the sector, points out market and political demands for applying verifiable environmental and social criteria and highlights the political framework and feed & food industry strategies.
Maintaining economic sustainability is an essential prerequisite in this respect. A full detailed programme and registration information can be found at www.fefaccongress2010.eu.
FEFAC President, Pedro Corrêa de Barros, and DVT President, Helmut Wulf, are pleased to announce the Congress and to invite member companies and sector organisations to participate. FEFAC and DVT are looking forward to welcoming all delegates in Hamburg.
