BRUSSELS, BELGIUM — The European Feed Manufacturers Federation (FEFAC) has opened registration for its XXIX Congress June 3-5 in Antwerp, Belgium.
Organized in cooperation with the Belgian Feed Association (BFA), the conference takes place at the Flanders Meeting & Convention Centre, located in the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Hall.
FEFAC said its Feed Sustainability Charter 2030 will be presented at conference. The charter is part of FEFAC’s implementation plan of its Vision 2030. The charter will include five feed sector ambitions that seek to positively impact the sustainability of livestock production in Europe.
It will provide meaningful and practical industry commitments responding to the E.U.’s Green Deal and Farm to Fork Strategy, FEFAC said. All FEFAC member associations have contributed to the charter development and will highlight their own working priorities and sector commitments.
The Congress program features keynote speeches from the European Commission and the Belgian authorities as well as sustainability case studies from sectors both inside and outside the European livestock sector.
“The FEFAC XXIX Congress provides a unique opportunity for the European feed industry to highlight its proactive contribution to the livestock sector’s transition to a low carbon economy,” said Nick Major, president of FEFAC. “Our sector guidelines on responsible sourcing and the measurement of environmental impacts offer practical solutions enabling our members and value chain partners to demonstrate which essential role they play for the development of a more sustainable food production system.”
