The annual International Feed Regulators Meeting (IFRM) organized by IFIF in cooperation with the FAO brings together regulators and feed industry professionals from across the globe. The next meeting will take place on March 14th, 2019 in Bangkok (Thailand).
IFRM Delegates exchange their thoughts and discuss concrete ideas for providing safe feed and food in a sustainable manner around the world. The 12th International Feed Regulators Meeting (IFRM) is organized by IFIF in cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), right after the 6th Global Feed & Food Congress, which will take place 11-13 March 2019.
Government feed regulators may attend this event at no fee and participation at the IFRM is by invitation only. Should you be interested in joining the IFRM please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to tackle the complex challenges in the feed sector, both the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the International Feed Industry Federation (IFIF) believe in the power of dialogue and collaboration among interested parties. Feed safety and security, animal health and welfare, and environmental, economic and social sustainability of feed and livestock production – these are all shared responsibilities that call for joint action.
One of the highlights of the long-standing IFIF and FAO cooperation, is the effort to facilitate a dialogue between the private and public sector on key issues affecting the feed and food chain. The International Feed Regulators Meeting (IFRM), organized by IFIF in cooperation with the FAO, is a unique forum for regulators and feed industry professionals from across the world to come together, informally exchange their thoughts and information, and to explore concrete ways to address jointly common challenges.
Since the first IFRM in 2007, the annual event has become a regular, well-established appointment. Many professionals of the feed sector look forward to it as a source of information, an opportunity for networking and a start to many successful partnerships.
An increasing number of international standards and national legislations are targeting the feed sector. New technologies are available, but also new challenges need to be faced. Participating to the meeting is an effective way to keep abreast of current issues and try to predict what is ahead for the sector.
