The world leading independent mycotoxin conference – The World Mycotoxin Forum – is spreading its wings and will organise the first Asia edition in January 2020.
The event will be organised by Misset International, the publisher of the international multimedia brand All About Feed, in cooperation with Bastiaanse Communication, the creator and organiser of the regular editions of the World Mycotoxin Forum (the next one will be in October 14-16 2019 in Belfast). All About Feed is already a premium media partner of the World Mycotoxin Forum as of 2004 with editions held in Europe and North America, and has now entered into a strategic cooperation with Bastiaanse Communication to launch the first Asian edition of the event.
One week, two brand new events
The first edition of the World Mycotoxin Forum meets Asia – WMFmeetsASIA – will be held in January 2020 in Bangkok, in the same week as the first edition of VIV health & nutrition Asia 2020. The exact day and location of WMFmeetsASIA will be communicated soon. “The cooperation with the established World Mycotoxin Forum to work on the first Asian edition is very exciting and is fuelled by the demands from the market to share and spread knowledge on mycotoxins in Asia. As a global information player in agriculture we therefore found an excellent partner in Bastiaanse Communication to organise the first edition in 2020”, explains Roel Leferink, publishing director at Misset. Helena Bastiaanse, managing director at Bastiaanse Communication, adds that “partnering with Misset strengthens the position of the World Mycotoxin Forum as a truly global and independent platform to discuss strategies for tackling the mycotoxin challenge”.
Mycotoxins: A key topic in Asia
Mycotoxins that contaminate crops and animal feed have been recognised as a risk to farm animals and humans, and account for considerable economic costs to the feed and food industries. With the growing livestock and aquaculture sectors in Asia, the need to have effective mycotoxin strategies in Asia is becoming a key topic for nutritionists, veterinarians, researchers, raw material handlers and all players in the agro-food chain.
“The aim of the new mycotoxin event in Asia is therefore to increase the awareness of human and animal health risks due to mycotoxin contamination and to focus on specific issues that Asian livestock and feed producers face. I am therefore looking forward to bring together professionals at such a high-quality scientific event in Bangkok to spread the latest knowledge on prevention and solutions of this prudent problem”, explains Emmy Koeleman, editor in chief for All About Feed.
The event also offers a platform for the food and feed industry, science and regulatory authorities to exchange current knowledge, to promote harmonisation of food and feed safety regulations and control procedures, and to make recommendations for integrated strategies ensuring the safety and security of food and feed supply chains. High-quality speakers, ample time for discussions, and every opportunity to establish rewarding contacts are values WMFmeetsASIA wants to uphold.
