Jakarta edition of BIOMIN's Asia Nutrition Forum starts with yet another bang


An eFeedLink Exclusive


True to the tradition of the strong local flavour of BIOMIN events, the Jakarta edition of the company's Asia Nutrition Forum (ANF) this year likewise did not disappoint with its unique welcome dinner, held at Museum Bank Indonesia yesterday October 22.


Customers, business partners and other invited guests of BIOMIN were first ushered into Museum Bank Indonesia for a tour of the history of its founding entity - Bank Indonesia.


Coincidentally, as Jan Vanbrabant, Asia Pacific CEO of BIOMIN, revealed in his opening speech, both the parents of the current managing director of BIOMIN Indonesia used to work for Bank Indonesia, which was testament to the special relationship between the Bank and BIOMIN!

Vanbrabant also said that this year's ANF will have seven stops in various Asian countries (Japan, Korea, China, India, Bangladesh, Indonesia), and BIOMIN expects to break its record with a total of 1,500 participants. This is also the first time that the Forum will stop over in Dhaka, Bangladesh. As the company's World Nutrition Forum is held only every two years, the ANF aims to open up more opportunities for interested participants.

The theme for this year's ANF is "Challenge, Opportunity, Success". Key issues for the feed and livestock industry at both the producer and consumer ends will be addressed today October 23, with Professor David Hughes, Emeritus Professor of Food Marketing at Imperial College London, giving his keynote speech. To start off the Forum proper, Erich Erber, founder of BIOMIN, will also be giving his opening speech.
