FEFANA and EPA Join Forces in Probiotics Pursuit

FEFANA and EPA have established a cooperation agreement to collaborate for the promotion of probiotics for animal nutrition. The two associations have recently joined their forces with the aim to generate, develop and share their expertise and information on probiotics with feed chain stakeholders.

FEFANA is the EU Association of Specialty Feed Ingredients and their Mixtures while EPA has been created to specifically support the generic promotion of probiotics in feed. Through several initiatives they inform and update the scientific communities, nutritionists and the relevant industries about the benefits of probiotics in animal nutrition.

While FEFANA’s activites are mainly focused on regulatory aspects impacting the specialty feed ingredients industry; this joining of forces will strengthen promotion of probiotics toward the feed chain partners which is a major incentive. The main ambition of this joint group is to better position the probiotics in the national, European and International arena as a pivotal source of information and thanks to combining their activities, this position is strengthened.

The joint group will work on a series of communication activities along the year on topics already identified and related to subjects perceived as important and/or innovative for probiotics information on which you will be able to find on their newly designed website once it has been built. in the near future.

The traditional Jules Tournut Probiotic Prize, created by EPA in 1999, will also be granted in November 2012 during the Eurotier in Hannover, Germany, to reward researchers for their innovative works in the field of probiotics in animal nutrition.

The joint group will operate within the FEFANA structure and make sure that their activities fit to the Specialty Feed Ingredients Industry overall objectives. Gérard Bertin, EPA Secretary General, will take care of the management of this joint group, with support and involvement of the FEFANA staff.
