FeedTechnoVision 2022 spotlights feed production strategies for turbulent times
As historic fluctuations in grain prices, supply chain disruptions, escalating energy costs and extreme weather events threaten feed producers' margins, a panel of five global experts on feed processing and quality will reflect on sustainable production strategies for managing feed safety, quality and energy consumption during FeedTechnovision 2022.
The programme will be livestreamed on Thursday, September 8, from 9am to 12pm CEST. The agenda includes a look at how feed producers can secure their position on raw material quality and availability as key drivers of input costs, how adaptions to process technology can help producers manage local raw material quality and strategies to reduce feed processing energy costs.
Finally, as extreme weather events become more common in many regions, the programme will address how to manage the special challenges that high temperature climate zones pose for feed production.
Expert panellists will take an in-depth look at the economics and operational efficiencies of feed production in today's unpredictable production environment.
The panel is comprised of five experts in the global feed sector: Robert van den Breemer, procurement director macro ingredients at Nutreco; Ernst Nef, feed industry consultant and former director at the Swiss Institute of Feed Technology; Jan Jonkers, former R&D manager at the Aquaculture Research Centre of Skretting; Paul Koolen, livestock programme manager for Middle East and Africa at Trouw Nutrition; and Geke Naaktgeboren-Stoffels, global quality director at Trouw Nutrition.
Open to all feed industry professionals, FeedTechnoVision 2022 aims to deliver agile approaches that will help feed producers navigate extreme and fast-moving challenges according to Pedro Caramona, category director of feed safety and quality at Selko Feed Additives.
"As multiple threats bring about a perfect storm for managing raw materials, energy and quality, there is an urgent need to consider how adapting feed production processes can respond to these challenges in a way that supports feed safety and quality and producers' sustainability and profitability objectives," said Caramona.
