Adifo and LISAM enter strategic partnership

Adifo, the International Milling Directory member and leading advertiser in the area of animal feed formulation software is partnering with LISAM. Millers may want to think about their recipes utilising their products. The new press release is below:-

 

In order to make sure that customers are constantly up to date with the current legislation, Adifo has entered an exclusive partnership with LISAM, a leading provider of software and service solutions for Environment, Health and Safety compliance. This partnership provides an integrated solution with BESTMIX® for animal feed, human food and semi-processing industries. Thanks to this integrated solution, companies will have full compliance insight during formulation and will supply professional labelling of hazardous materials and MSDS authoring.

EU labelling regulation for hazardous chemicals

In December 2008 the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union passed regulation 1272/2008 to protect workers, consumers and the environment from hazardous
chemicals. The new regulation will go in full effect on the first of June, 2015. From that day on producers of hazardous chemicals will have to comply with new rules on classification, labelling & packaging of mixtures. The obligation to comply with the ever changing CLP requirements means the workload of affected producers is greatly increased.

Karel Vervaet, BESTMIX® Development Manager at Adifo:

“Adifo understands the core business of a premix supplier is not found in keeping up with regulatory restrictions and language barriers. We therefore decided to offer BESTMIX® users the opportunity to enhance their profit-driven feed formulation tool with a CLP classification module. The extra module will guarantee full CLP compliancy at all times in Europe and provides real-time CLP calculation during optimization. The resulting CLP pictograms, H and P statements, etc. are stored with the formula and are printable on the label. The new module is not limited to the European CLP standard, but also provides in the worldwide GHS standard. This partnership with LISAM is part of Adifo’s ecosystem of Partners strategy.”

Kristof Lecocq, Sales Manager at LISAM Systems:

“As a market leader, partnerships are strategically important for us in our quest for continuous growth. They give us the opportunity to cooperate with specialists from different industries and to share their insights.

With this partnership we gain access to the food and feed industry, which was until now more or less a blind spot in our customer portfolio. These companies are heavily impacted by the June 2015 GHS deadline and we are pleased that we can offer them, together with a strong partner such as Adifo, a solution so that they can remain focussed on their core business.”

2012 to 2014…VIV China 2014 set for success

The International Milling Directory, as part of Perendale Publishers, proud to be an official media partner of VIV China 2014.

VIV China: from Feed to Meat
In its role as the nation’s platform on animal production and meat processing, VIV China showcases the industry’s developments by the Feed to Meat concept. Feed to meat brings together supply and demand within the complete animal protein chain. The driver behind the chain concept is that animal feed and animal health are vital for meat quality and safety. VIV China will represent every step in the meat production process. Related topics will be featured in the VIV China Conference.

In 2012, the last time VIV China was held, the organising team led by Ruwan Berculo, made plans for this year’s events. They have come around to be right on plan and built on the solid foundations of 2012. Milling for animal feed is a large part of the event and the Chinese market has grown since 2012. Let’s take a look back to the report from 2012:–

VIV China has once again profiled itself as an international platform for products, knowledge and technology for the Chinese animal protein production industry. Following many positive reactions to the event, project manager Ruwan Berculo concludes that the new concept is a success and can act as a blueprint for the next exhibition. The next VIV China is planned for 2014, from 23-25 September. “A compact, high-quality exhibition with a high visitor level, many international delegations, people from emerging economies and a Chinese business audience specifically attracted by innovations,” Berculo summarises afterwards. “You could feel the amazing energy in the air. The enthusiasm and the interest have reinforced our idea that this is what the animal protein industry in China needs. With very well-attended congresses, seminars and receptions parallel to the exhibition, we created a network meeting that counts. Moreover, the atmosphere was great. The top and sub top of the industry have attended; so 13,874 visitors is a high score.”

VIV China received delegations from the Middle East, Russia and South East Asia, among others. The exhibitors were full of praise about the new approach. According to Ruwan Berculo, for Chinese exhibitors, the exhibition was the perfect method to present themselves to the world. The Dutch delegation was also prominent, also due to the co-operating businesses in the poultry sector, the Dutch Poultry Centre. In the words of president Jos Ramekers it was a very successful exhibition, judging by the many contacts established with Chinese interested parties. On behalf of the Product Board Animal Feed, Tjeerd den Hollander said: “The VIV-summit was a very successful exposure for our project for comparing the feed import legislation of China and the EU. As a result of the summit we received lots of positive comments and reflection on our project, which gave us useful information for the finalisation of the project.”

More positive reactions about the International China Summit followed, including from Jeroen Leffelaar, Global Head Animal Protein at Rabobank: “The strong attendance at the International China Summit proved once again that Chinese professionals in animal protein production are very committed to being updated on trends and developments in their industry. In co-operation with VIV, we created an excellent opportunity to share our visions with these valuable relations.” Marleen Boerjan of Pas Reform also speaks highly of the result of the seminars: “During the seminar we provided the most up-to-date information on modular single stage incubation. We are very grateful to VIV for their support and hospitality in hosting this event and to the hatchery professionals who attended. All their questions and involvement made it such an interesting and successful occasion. We look forward to the next seminar”. The first edition of the International China Summit, on Saturday preceding the exhibition, was attended by 266 delegates. The parallel seminars on this day as well as the Closing Plenary Conference were also extremely popular and attracted large audiences.

In addition to the International China Summit, the Food Safety Poultry Forum on Friday September 21 was also well-attended. Poultry International China Edition and WATT also attracted over 100 interested visitors with a series of leading speakers. Greg Watt, President/CEO at WATT, immediately stated his wish to repeat this valuable meeting prior to VIV China 2014. The last congress was organised by the Chinese Association of Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine (CAAV) on the second exhibition day in the NCIEC. The Beijing International Breeding Pig Industry Development Symposium attracted 300 Chinese and international delegates. Initiator Mr Machuang, Director International Affairs at CAAV, looks back on this success with great pleasure.

New AACCI approved RVA Method for Determining the Gelatinization Temperature for Milled Rice Flour

International Milling Directory member, Perten Instruments has just gained an approval for their new flour analysis method called the RVA (Rapid Visco Analyser)

The RVA (Rapid Visco Analyser) Method for Determining the Gelatinization Temperature for Milled Rice Flour has been approved by AACCI (American Association of Cereal Chemists) as Method number 61-04.01.

Gelatinization temperature (GT) is commonly measured to assess rice cooking and processing potential. A faster method using a small quantity of sample has been desired for some time as traditional methods of estimating rice GT using the amylograph and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) are time-consuming and, in the case of the amylograph, require large quantities of samples – not well suited to rice breeding requirements. The Rapid Visco Analyser (RVA) is a cooking, stirring viscometer with ramped temperature and variable shear capability. It is commonly used in laboratories to measure the pasting properties of rice and provides the advantages of speed, ease of use, and small sample size requirements. In parallel testing with the traditional methods, the new RVA method also provided more precise results.

2nd Global Milling Conference – Live Update

The International Milling Directory has been excited to hear from our colleagues in Bangalore, India at the close of the second and final day of the 2nd Global Milling Conference.
This conference was held with delegates able to also visit VIV India, which was also in Bangalore in the same week.
A report is below giving a great insight into how this conference went and a look ahead to the next one in 2015.

Roger Gilbert from the International Milling Directory speaks at the 2nd Global Milling Conference, Bangalore, India on April 24th 2014

Roger Gilbert from the International Milling Directory speaks at the 2nd Global Milling Conference, Bangalore, India on April 24th 2014

There was great excitement on the closing day of the 2nd Global Milling Conference today when scientist Dr Sourav Kumar of the International School of Milling Technology at the Central Food Technological Research Institute in Mysore, India, announced the introduction of a new ‘milk’ product made exclusively from wheat germ and which can sell at one-third the current retail price for milk – and which has twice the nutritional content.
Dr Kumar believes that this new product – which a team of 12 scientists developed over an 11-month period – offers India’s malnourished an affordable nutritional drink that will aid growth and development in children and help overcome health issues afflicting adults, such as staving off the development of cancerous cells.
While there is a certain amount of skepticism associated with stories of this nature, on this occasion Dr Kumar samples of his milk product on display – along with a soup broth made from the same processed wheat germ and served to delegates at lunch – tasted like fresh drinking yoghurt. From our personal opinion, the muffin made from the same wheat germ product was rather dry but otherwise very acceptable!
While feeding the world’s hungry might not be upper most in the mind of flour millers (but which this writer believes should be), there is an added advantage for millers who produce flour from this wheat germ product – the resulting flour has an extended shelf life when processed into bread and bakery products. Patents have been applied for the process involved as it is believed by the institute that this wheat germ product could have widespread appeal in many countries including those struggling to provide drinking milk for their populations and where flour milling is carried out. Grain & Feed Milling Technology (GFMT) website will carry a full report on this exciting development in the May-June 2014 edition.
Meanwhile, some 95 people attended the first day of the 2nd Global Milling Conference and some 55 on the second day. Number were not as high as expected due to the Glance2014 (Global Animal Nutrition) Conference held on animal nutrition and involving feed manufacturing in Bangalore over the preceding three days.
However, those who did attend heard from 20 highly quality speakers on topics ranging from millers and feeding a growing world population through to methods and techniques to avoid waste in the chain of production from harvest through to final product.
Many of the presentations have been recorded on video and will be made available on the Grain & Feed Milling Technology (GFMT) website in due course. Other papers will be carried in up-coming editions of the Grain & Feed Milling Technology magazine.
Perendale Publishers and Assocom-India co-hosted this event and plan to host the next 3rd Global Milling Conference in India in September 2015.
The organisers would like to express their thanks to all the speakers and sponsors, including our main sponsor VIV India, for their support in making this a successful event!
