FEFAC and AFACA to hold congress in Spain
FEFAC and AFACA, representing the European and Andalusian Animal Feed Industry respectively, will hold the XXVIII FEFAC Congress and the V Animal Nutrition Congress in Cordoba, Spain, from June 8-9, 2017 with the key theme "Facing the future together – Unlocking the potential of animal nutrition".
European Commissioner for Agriculture & Rural Development Mr. Phil Hogan will deliver a keynote speech on how to improve the competitiveness of the European livestock and feed sector, with a view to the mid-term review of the Common Agricultural Policy.
FEFAC and AFACA also announce that the King of Spain, Don Felipe VI, accepted to be the honorary president to the organisational committee of the joint congress.
On the programme, FEFAC and AFACA aim to include expert sessions dedicated to the role of animal nutrition in key societal challenges including fighting antimicrobial resistance and stimulating circular economies in the feed and livestock sector. The importance of better public communication seeking to improve the sector’s image will also feature highly in the joint congress.
FEFAC and AFACA expect about 550 delegates from the EU, international feed and food chain partners, as well as representatives from national and EU public administrations.
