FeedTechnoVision - you are invited!

The demand for global compound feed production continues to grow in 2022-2023 lead by Asia and North America. However, the world has perhaps never seen this level of simultaneous agricultural disruption, leading to global feed and food scrutiny.

The increasing threat from the global grain market rally, supply-chain disruptions, climate concerns, global inflation, high energy- and other input cost, are expected to continue to place additional downward pressure on feed manufacturing margins and subsequent increase in feed costs.

Rising feed costs pose a significant challenge to animal production. After a critical look at the production processes in feed processing operations, the feed Industry is urged to answer by offering alternative solutions to optimize resource utilization and manufacturing processes, while providing safe and nutritious feed.

During FeedTechnoVision we aim to inspire you to cope with global trends. Join us live!
