FEFAC President Mr Patrick Vanden Avenne and Izba Zbozowo-Paszowa / Grain & Feed Chamber, the Polish Feed Industry Association (IZBA) President Mr Adam Tanski, invite all partners of the European and international feed and livestock chain to join FEFAC’s Congress in Cracow to find out how to stay profitable in volatile times.
Key note speakers from the European Commission, including Deputy Director General Mr Jerzy Bogdan Plewa, the Polish Ministry of Agriculture, global financial institutions, market & food chain partners, and academia will present their views on how to maintain a vibrant livestock economy in a volatile market and political environment. They will discuss with the Congress audience on how our industry can meet both European and global consumer demand while ensuring the economic viability of livestock producers and value chain partners.
At a time when the CAP reform proposals are moving to the final stage of the political negotiation process under the Irish EU Council Presidency, FEFAC’s Congress will provide a unique opportunity to take stock of the key measures which could help improve competitiveness of the EU livestock sector, including new initiatives for innovation and sustainable development in livestock agriculture.
Adam Tanski highlighted that “FEFAC’s Congress delegates will discover with their own eyes how the Polish feed and livestock sector managed to take advantage of new business opportunities in the past decade since EU enlargement and how they plan to make the new CAP work for the benefit of Polish agriculture”.
FEFAC President Patrick Vanden Avenne stated that “the only certainty we have today is that volatility is here to stay – our industry needs to support and encourage swift policy and market actions to develop the new financial risk management tools that allow our sector to stay profitable in the years ahead reaping the benefit from growing global consumer demand for products of animal origin”!
Interested Congress delegates should take advantage of the Early-bird offer which will expire March 31, 2013.
