Open to IFFO members and non-IFFO members interested in the marine ingredients value chain, the conference will discuss feed ingredient strategies for the future, supply and demand for marine ingredients and will explore the role that marine ingredients play in human health. Registration will end on October 4.

The program features presentations and panel discussions involving Gideon Rachman (Financial Times), Einar Wathne (Industry expert), Jim Cannon (Sustainable Fisheries Partnership) and Luisa Valente (University of Porto).

There will be discussions on specialist topics looking at salmon farming with Carl-Emil Kjølås Johannessen (Pareto Securities) and Antony Prabhu Philip (Nofima) and human health requirements with Philip Calder (University of Southampton) and Aldo Bernasconi (GOED).

The Conference’s Market Forum will provide a deep dive into Europe, West Africa, India, Chile and Peru’s supply while looking at feed ingredients industry beyond fishmeal and fish oil (soy, algae, krill).

“Optional side events complement the program, focusing on market access through certification, emerging EU regulations, and fisheries management’s role in improving food security. We are grateful to all conference sponsors and our side event partners, MarinTrust, GOED and the Global Roundtable on Marine Ingredients,” Petter Martin Johannessen, IFFO’s director general notes.
