The 2013 International Production & Processing Expo is over for another year. Officialy the last post of the event was yesterday but we wanted to surprise you with another one summing up this important event and also on how the many copies of The International Milling Directory that were taken to the show to be distributed to leading companies and organisation, and about the banner on the Perendale stand extolling the benefits of the IMD in its main digital form. This form is in IMD 24/7 on the PPLAPP (access the IMD web app by clicking on the first icon in the top-left hand corner called

‘Directory’). The app is completely free, just use your touchscreen device and save it as an app to your  device’s menu.

Overall, official press releases from IPPE today describe that it exceeded its expectations with more than 25,000 poultry, meat and feed industry leader attendees from all over the world. In addition, the show had 1,189 exhibitors with more than 430,000 net square feet of exhibit space. Final numbers will be released after the registration database has been audited for duplications. Sponsored by U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, American Feed Industry Association, and the American Meat Institute, IPPE is the world’s largest annual poultry, meat, and feed industry event of its kind.

“We are extremely pleased with the number of exhibitors and attendees on the exhibit floor for IPPE. We have had a great turn-out this year, and the energy and excitement on the floor has been apparent all week,” remarked the three trade associations.

The central attraction was the large exhibit floor. Exhibitors presented the latest innovations in equipment, supplies, and services utilised by industry firms in the production and processing of poultry, eggs, feed products, and meat. Many companies use the annual event to highlight their new products. All phases of the poultry, feed, and meat industry were represented, from live production and process events at IPPE.

Dr Mian Riaz of Texas A&M University, a contributor to both International Aquafeed and Grain &Feed Milling Technology, visited our stand on day two to meet with Roger Gilberting to further processing and packaging.

An expanded education program complemented the exhibits by keeping industry management informed on the latest issues. This year’s educational line-up featured 15 associated conferences at the event, ranging from an antibiotic conference on current issues for the poultry and egg industry to an international feed education program to international regulatory topics for meat.

The College Student Career Program attracted more than 400 students from 26 universities throughout the United States, while the new International Student Career Program brought in 13 students from four countries. The graduating students interviewed for jobs and internships with 93 human resource representatives from 28 industry and allied firms. They were also able to visit the exhibit floor to see the most current technology used in today’s poultry industry.

Other featured events included a Tech XChange programme, the International Poultry Scientific Forum, Meat Me in @LANTA activities, publisher-sponsored conference programmes, and the Pet Food Conference, all of which made the 2013 IPPE the premiere annual feed and protein event of the western hemisphere.

The International Milling Directory now looks ahead to the next relevant event, GEAPS Exchange 2013 which coincidentally is also in the US. It will take place from Sunday 24th to Tuesday 26th February.

OLAM and GAFTA to speak at the high-profile Soft Commodities Summit: February 2013, Geneva, Switzerland.

image001

International Milling Directory staff and some members are entering a second day of ISRMAX in Delhi, India. Marking events is something we at Milling International like to do for our readers and International Milling Directory members but we always look ahead to future industry events. One event we are excited about is the Soft Commodities Summit taking place in the scenic city of Geneva, Switzerland in February next year.

The volatile and changing market presents new demands, and the need has arisen to get fresh insights into dealing with priorities in the most effective way. With this in mind, the International Research Network (IRN) brings you an even more focused event with fresh content and sessions on 26-27th February 2013 where you can pick up unrivalled advice and insights on how to develop excellence in every part of your organisation; from building efficient strategies to reducing costs and risks across the supply chain and of course engaging your corporate responsibility towards the crucial new challenges of the industry.

Senior level practitioners across the soft commodities industry will be addressing exclusive presentations over the two days. Olam, Cargill, Armajaro, Ameropa, Louis Dreyfus and HSBC are among the numerous companies involved in the forum this year again. Through interactive presentations, case studies and workshops, their senior-level representatives will be looking at the best practices in terms of reducing costs and driving efficiency within the operations. They will demonstrate in real concrete cases the strategies that can be put in place to help the industry embrace effective approaches to challenges such as sustainability, integration of developing countries, keeping up with the logistical and legal aspects, risk management across the supply chain as well as human and resource asset development.

‘Jagdish Parihar, Managing Director, Natural Fibers Division, Olam International Ltd’ will be discussing the long-term future of agricultural commodities and the key challenges.

‘Pamela Kirby Johnson OBE, Director General, GAFTA’ will be discussing Warehousing – Assessing effective measures and practices in quality control, standards and certification challenges.

Financial institutions and commodity finance specialists will also have a look at the implications of the Euro zone crisis on the industry. The summit is a must-attend event for professionals involved in the soft commodities trading industry, whether they deal with rice, cocoa, cotton, sugar, coffee or grains.

It is a critical point to bring the key players in the industry together once again. SCT 2013 has been designed to allow discussions, benchmarking and networking.

Registration for the summit is open at http://www.softssummit.com/.
