Our Members’ Meeting in Madrid, followed by the IFFO workshop in Zhuhai (China), gave all our members and delegates a very detailed overview of the marine ingredients market and quality trends as well as deep insights on climate change impacts and the way to keep improving our contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Focusing on the digital revolution in feed and livestock farming was the highlight of the 6th Global Feed and Food Congress (GFFC) held in Bangkok in March 2019. A new acronym was provided – Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) and the importance of ensuring that diets are absolutely specified for the farmed animals. This very clearly represents a business opportunity for a high value nutritious product like fishmeal and fish oil, where the absolute nutritional values will be essential in optimizing growth and production efficiencies as we talk about in IFFO at length. Digitialising agriculture is seen as the next (the 4th) agricultural revolution.
