The 5th Global Feed & Food Congress (GFFC) will be held in Antalya, Turkey, on 18-20 April 2016 and IFIF has the pleasure invite you to join this unique and important event, which will bring together the global feed & food chain in Turkey in 2016.

Organized by the International Feed Industry Federation (IFIF) in cooperation with the European Feed Manufacturers’ Federation (FEFAC) and hosted by the Turkish Feed Manufacturers’ Association (TURKIYEM BIR), with technical support provided by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the GFFC has established itself as the leading global event of its kind.

“We are absolutely delighted that the GFFC will be held in Turkey, which is at the heart of a fast growing region for the feed & food sector” says Mario Sergio Cutait, IFIF Chaiman. Mr. Cutait adds the “Congress theme ‘Equity and Prosperity for all’ links to the global challenge to provide safe, affordable, nutritious and sustainable animal protein sources 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.”

The GFFC will attract over 1,200 delegates from Turkey and from around the world and will feature exceptional speakers who will provide their insights and expertise in roundtables, plenaries and workshops. The sessions at the 5th GFFC will cover the whole feed manufacturing and food processing value chain, with a special focus on Sustainability, Markets & Trade, Feed & Food Safety, Regulations & Standards, Animal Nutrition and Innovation and R&D.

In addition to world-class experts, The GFFC programme will have high-level speakers from global intergovernmental institutions, including from the FAO, the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) as well as CEO’s from leading global animal nutrition and food companies, food chain partners, national authorities, the research community and international Civil Society organizations at the Congress.

Since the Global Feed & Food Congress was first launched in 2005 by IFIF together with the FAO, four very strong events have been held, with the last Congress in Sun City, South Africa breaking all records in terms of attendance, speakers and quality. IFIF’s aim, together with the FAO and our regional partners, has always been to provide a global platform for industry, experts and governments to come together to discuss critical issues of food and feed safety, technology and sustainability. The last Congresses have succeeded brilliantly in this and the 5th Global Feed & Food Congress in Antalya should not only meet the high standards set in the past, but will surpass them.
