Just 1 month to go until the FEFAC and Nevedi 66th FEFAC Public Annual Meeting on 2 June 2022 in Utrecht, during the VICTAM/VIV Europe Expo. You can register for the event here. We now have a confirmed programme, speakers lineup and practical information about our event here. Asbjørn Børsting (FEFAC President) and Henk Flipsen (Nevedi Director) give their welcoming remarks for the Joint FEFAC-Nevedi Public Annual Event which can be viewed below
Mr Børsting and Mr Flipsen shared their insights into the reasons why it was decided by FEFAC and Nevedi to co-host the public event this year in Utrecht during VICTAM and VIV-Europe. They refer to the impact of the EU food & feed autonomy in times of geopolitical crisis due to the war in Ukraine and the latest EU food sector Resilience plan and the Green Deal in terms of deforestation-free supply chains.
EU & Dutch feed industry and farmer leaders will exchange views with EU and national policy-makers on how the feed industry can mitigate the impacts of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which closed off essential feed grain supplies from the Black Sea in both the short-term and long-term while staying on the pathway to more sustainable food production systems. The second expert panel will discuss the European Commission proposal on deforestation-free supply chains as well as bring practically feasible soy value chain solutions to the table to achieve the Green Deal objectives on Biodiversity.
