Nutriad a sponsor of 3rd IHSIG Symposium in Belgium
Nutriad was a proud sponsor of this year's IHSIG Symposium, which was held in Ghent, Belgium) on October 15-16. The Intestinal Health Scientific Interest Group organised its third symposium on poultry gut health to evoke discussions with the scientific community, poultry producers, regulatory authorities and poultry veterinarians, aiming to promote health and welfare in poultry production.
Nutriad was represented by Dr Tim Goossens, business development manager, Digestive Performance; and Anne-Harm Algra, regional sales manager, Benelux.
"Nutriad is known for its research on intestinal health and its ability to transform science into practical solution for producers worldwide, and in that context the 'One World, One Health' theme of this year was of special interest", commented Dr Goossens.
Added Mr. Algra: "With a product range dedicated to intestinal health and feed and food safety, Nutriad strives to continue to be a front runner in this area of expertise".
The 2015 symposium's One Health concept recognises that the health of humans is connected to the health of animals and the environment. Humans and animals interact with greater frequency and intimacy in a globalised world. This interaction offers the opportunity for the emergence and spread of disease agents that could adversely impact animal or human health, or both.
The topics covered ranged from gut microbiota in health and disease, the pathogenicity of campylobacter for poultry and humans, the virulence mechanisms of Clostridium perfringens, to antimicrobial resistance determination and its consequences for animal and human health.
This year's conference was attended by about 250 participants, including veterinarians, poultry producers, and scientists from academia and industry.
Nutriad, headquartered in Belgium, delivers products and services to over 80 countries through its network of offices and distributors, supported by four application laboratories and five manufacturing facilities located on three continents.
