Registration is now open for FEFAC 30th Congress
FEFAC, DAKOFO, and FS, representing respectively the European, Danish and Swedish feed industry, invite you to the 30th FEFAC Congress to be held on 14-16 June 2023 in Ystad (Sweden), dedicated to the “Resilience of Sustainable EU food production systems – Role of circular feed”.
In the context of the current EU energy crisis debate on EU food security and resilience of the EU agri-food chain, the congress explores how the European feed industry can assist the livestock and aquaculture sector to meet the EU Green Deal and sustainable food systems targets while providing affordable foodstuffs of animal origin to citizens.
FEFAC President Asbjørn Børsting: “The upcycling of nutrients through farm animals, converting secondary raw materials to highly bioavailable nutrients for human consumption, is an important part of our license to produce as European feed manufacturers. We can provide many concrete examples already today, allowing us to increase the share in feed formulations of circular feed, not competing with direct human food use. However, we recommend a critical review of current bottlenecks in the EU regulatory framework that restrict circularity in EU food systems through animal nutrition, to allow for further optimisation of our circular economy potential in the forthcoming EU Sustainable Food Systems Framework”.
FS President Jan Rundqvist: “The European feed industry has an important role to play in the overall ambition for sustainability. In this transition, several important interests must of course be balanced and we can clearly see that circular flows will play an increasingly important role. From the Swedish side, we appreciate the chance to delve into this together with our European colleagues and to learn from our common best knowledge. In these troubling times, we need each other more than ever and our collaboration through FEFAC is of great importance to us all.”
