The 6th edition of the Global Feed & Food Congress (GFFC) will be held for the first time in the ASEAN region, and will bring together leaders from the global feed and food chain in Bangkok, Thailand, on 11-13 March 2019 under the theme ‘The future of Feed & Food – are we ready?’
Organized by the International Feed Industry Federation (IFIF) with technical support provided by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and in collaboration with VIV worldwide, the GFFC has established itself as the leading global event of its kind.
“We are absolutely delighted that the next GFFC will be held in Thailand, which is at the heart of a fast-growing region for the feed and food sector. Our Congress theme “The future of Feed & Food – are we ready?” links to the global challenge to provide safe, affordable, nutritious and sustainable animal protein sources through innovative solutions to feed 9 billion people by 2050 and reflects our shared vision to achieve this for a growing world population now and for the future” said Daniel Bercovici, IFIF Chairman.
He added “We look forward to welcoming global feed and food chain leaders to Bangkok, Thailand. We firmly believe that only by working together can we meet the demands of 60% more food by 2050 and do so sustainably.”
The 6th GFFC is expected to attract over 350 high level delegates from around the world and will feature exceptional speakers who will provide their insights and expertise in roundtables and plenaries. The 6th GFFC will include sessions on the Digital Revolution, Sustainability, Feed & Food Safety, Nutritional Innovation, Global Regulations & Policy, Leadership & Talent, Markets & Trade, and the future of Farming Systems.

The tri-annual Congress has established itself as the leading global event of its kind and was last held in Antalya, Turkey, in 2016. For more information please visit http://www.gffc2019.com/.
