IFFO – The Marine Ingredients Organisation announced its 61st Annual Conference will be held from October 23-25 in Cape Town, South Africa. Open to IFFO members and non-IFFO members interested in the marine ingredients value chain, the conference will discuss the foremost issues shaping the future of nutrition, and the role marine ingredients will play. Registration deadline ends on October 6.

The conference provides a pre-competitive platform for sharing knowledge and making the most of networking opportunities amongst the thought leaders who represent the main marine ingredients market drivers: aquaculture, nutraceuticals, and pet food.

Key themes include food security, omega-3s, precision nutrition and ESG

The program features presentations and panel discussions involving Professor Manuel Barange, director of the FAO’s Fisheries and Aquaculture division, and David Pilling, African editor at Financial Times. There will be interactive discussions on specialist topics looking at how ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) rating is impacting sourcing policies, how precision nutrition as well as feed footprint measurement and traceability requirements are shaping the feed sector and the role marine ingredients have to contribute to food security globally.

The conference’s market forums will provide an unparalleled global outlook from across our industry, covering both the supply and demand of marine ingredients.

“We chose Cape Town for this year’s edition, after Lima in 2022 and Shanghai in 2019, because it fits with the marine ingredients industry’s involvement in global food security discussions and reflects the global presence of the industry, on all continents,” Petter Martin Johannessen, IFFO’s director general, explained.
