VIV China 2012: WPC 2016 and VIV China 2016 Enter Strategic Partnership

We end our series on VIV China 2012 with some great news. After such an exciting and successful exhibition this year we are delighted to have been involved and look forward to attending future events along with our fellow industry peers and clients.

Our last installment relates to the event but a little before it started this year. On Monday August 6, 2012, the representatives of the World’s Poultry Science Association (WPSA) China Branch, the Chinese Association of Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine (CAAV) and VNU Exhibitions Europe have signed the agreement regarding the Strategic Partnership for the organization of the World’s Poultry Congress (WPC) 2016 and VIV China 2016 in Beijing. WPC 2016 will take place in the China National Convention Center (CNCC), September 5-9. VIV China will be held at the New China International Exhibition Center (NCIEC), September 6-8. The signing ceremony took place at WPC 2012 in Salvador, Brazil.

All 4 partners foresee in this Strategic Partnership a winning co-operation to unite Poultry scientists and businessmen worldwide in Beijing in September 2016. The XXV WPC 2016 is co-hosted by the China Branch of the World’s Poultry Science Association (WPSA-CN) and the CAAV. VIV China 2016 is organized by VNU Exhibitions Europe, the Head Quarters of VIV Worldwide, and its Chinese partner Beijing Tech Convention and Exhibition Center.

During the signing ceremony in Salvador, Ning Yang, Ph.D., President, China Branch of WPSA and Ruwan Berculo, Project Manager VIV, officially announced this exclusive co-operation. Ning Yang comments: “The exhibition has become an important activity as part of the World’s Poultry Conferences. In VIV China we have found our preferred partner to establish a high-quality international exhibition”. Ruwan Berculo adds: “At VIV, we value the opportunity to bring Business and Science together, which is in the interest of a bright future for the global Poultry industries. Our Strategic Partnership with WPC 2016 forms a true highlight in the mission to strengthen our events”.

Although it is still 4 years away from now, WPSA-CN, CAAV, VNUE E and BT have already defined an extensive program of activities to ensure that WPC 2016 and VIV China 2016 will become one combined event for all players in our industry. Over the course of time, more detailed information will become available.

Naturally we here at Perendale Publishers are very excited about this development which signifies a great enhancement in the importance for VIV China, remarking its reputation as a not to be missed event. Our representatives were so glad to have attended VIV China 2012 where we met so many of a valued clients and even made some new friends along the way.

VIV China 2012: Food Safety Poultry Forum & Breeding Pig Industry Development Symposium

Welcome to part IV in this weeks round up of VIV China 2012, which was attended by our representatives from Perendale Publishers along with industry experts and market leaders from all across the world. Today we take a look at the Food Safety Poultry Forum and also the Breeding Pig Industry Development Symposium which were two excellent examples of why VIV China 2012 was so important this year.

Food Safety Poultry Forum

The Food Safety Poultry Forum took place on October 21, 2012 with the ambition to discuss; how to create a food safety culture “from the chain of feed to food” and the establishment of a food safety standard and supervision system to encourage the self-discipline of food companies.

Over a hundred visitors attended the forum which platformed a great debate among them thanks to both the guests and the carefully selected guest speakers. One of whom was Greg Watt, President/CEO at WATT publisher of the Poultry International China Edition and WATT. Talking to us after the forum he immediately stated his wish to repeat this valuable meeting prior to VIV China’s next edition in 2014.

Breeding Pig Industry Development Symposium

The Beijing International Breeding Pig Industry Development Symposium (BPIDS), was organized by the Chinese Association of Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine (CAAV) and took place on September 24, 2012.

Again showcasing an array of quality speakers, visitors were also treated to an opening ceremony which was seen by over 300 Chinese and international delegates.  Initiator Mr. Machuang, Director International Affairs at CAAV, looks back at success of the event with pleasure saying, “This is a great event and so many have come to see it which is why it is so good to be here.”

The International China Summit

Hello and welcome to the third installment of this weeks feature on VIV China 2012, today we will be looking at the International China Summit.

The first edition of the International China Summit preceding VIV China 2012, was visited by 266 delegates which paid tribute to the tremendous effort made by everybody involved.

One visitor representing the Product Board Animal Feed said, “The VIV-summit was a very successful exposure for our project regarding the comparison of the feed import legislation of China and the EU.”

Tjeerd den Hollander continued,  “As a result of the summit we received lots of positive comments and reflection on our project, which gave us useful information for the finalization of the project.”

The strong attendance for the International China Summit proved once again that Chinese professionals in animal protein production are very committed to be updated on trends and developments in their industry, one that should not be ignored by an ever expanding marketplace due to an increase in world population and communication connectivity.

We caught up with Marleen Boerjan of Pasreform who was also positive after her presentation when she said, “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”.

A running theme throughout the summit was that of celebration towards the value added at VIV China 2012, too many times event organizers are guilty of missing the little touches that make a big difference. Mari van Gruijthuijsen, general manager at Jan Poultry Equipment echoed this sentiment saying, “The VIV organizers understand very well how important it is to add value to exhibitions by organizing surrounding events, like this Summit. This is very attractive for the national and international visitors, and there for also for the exhibitors. “

Tomorrow we take a look at the Poultry and Pig elements covered at the event including handling safety.

VIV China 2012: Experiences from Exhibitors

Hello and welcome to Part II in this weeks series of articles on VIV China 2012. Today we’ll be looking at some of the exhibitors and sharing their experiences with you as well as our own as an important media coverage provider for the event.

VIV China 2012 welcomed delegations from amongst others, the Middle East, Russia and Southeast Asia. Exhibitors were full of praise about the new approach and of course it was a chance for Chinese exhibitors to boost their international profile.

First we heard from Richmon Hess of British Diamond Engineering who said he was “overwhelmed by the response to [our] stand. We believe that the VIV China exhibition has helped the marketing of our Evolution Automated Chick Vaccinator and Automist Spray Vaccinators exponentially.”

There seemed to be an extra interest in  feed and meat, which is VIV’s tried and tested formula. Motomi Yang of eFeedLink Pte Ltd speaks highly of both the exhibition and the congresses he said, “VIV China is a professional Feed to Meat trading platform organised with international standards… The International China Summit sets the standard for conferences, with well-organised and enriching sessions for both Chinese and international attendees.”

Mr Yangs sentiments were shared by our delegates from Perendale Publishers who managed to catch up with so many of you at the event whilst also representing our three major publications (including the IMD), for which they received fantastic feedback.

In an interview with Jo du Toit from Technical Systems from Cape Town we found out just what this event meant to them when she said,  “VIV China is vital for interaction with old and new customers especially for building and strengthening relationships. It remains an absolute must trade show, for any company that wants to keep up with market conditions. We thank all our customers and visitors whom visited our booth and we are honoured to be part of the VIV success.”

I think that the overall good vibe surrounding this years success was encapsulated by Patent Co. who have become a regular visitor after three VIV events. The company is now preparing for VIV Asia in Thailand in 2013 according to company spokesperson Milinko Canovic who said, “Our experience exceeded our expectations, as this was the first time we presented Patent co. products in China. We are impressed with the choice of exhibitors, and the number of visitors we had at our booth. Contacts we made were excellent, and they make us optimistic regarding the expansion of Patent co. business in South-East Asia.”

VIV China 2012: Part I

Hello and welcome to the first in a series of post that we will be running this week in response to the recent VIV event that took place in China earlier this month.

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 concluded that the new concept has been a success and can act as a blueprint for the next exhibition.

VIV China 2012 can be summarized as a compact, quality event with high level visitors, a lot of international delegations, people from upcoming economies and a Chinese business audience that is focused on innovation. It marks a huge event in our yearly calendar here at Perendale Publishers and the positive energy surrounding it was infectious.

The enthusiasm and the interest have strengthened our belief that this is a platform that the animal protein industry in China really needs. With congresses, seminars and receptions before, during and after the event that were very well visited, we have presented a networking summit that matters.

Furthermore, the atmosphere was fantastic. The top and sub top of the industry have attended, making the score of 13.874 visitors a very strong result.

Throughout this week we will be talking in more details about elements of the event such as speeches, the exhibitors and who we met there.

The next VIV China is planned for 2014, from 23-25 September.

UK Grains Harvest 2012: What we already knew…

The global price of wheat has increased by an astounding 30% over the past 12 months – which according to the UK based National Farmers Union (NFU), has put massive pressure on farmers who buy grain to feed their livestock.

NFU President Peter Kendal was discussing the worst wheat growth in the UK since the 1980’s when he said, “The challenge for the pig and poultry market is trying to make sure that retailers pay a fair price, because in pigs 50% of the cost is grain, poultry it’s 60% – and these farmers at the moment, because the prices haven’t responded yet, they’re actually saying I’m not going to fill my sheds with poultry or pigs any more.”

The problems faced by farmers in the UK and the global increase in wheat prices are both adding to fears over rises in food prices reports the BBC News wesbsite. But The extreme weather has taken its toll on the amount of food produced and the quality of food and grain.

Martyn Jones, from the Morrisons supermarket chain, said that, for example, carrots were not quite as sweet as previous years, and the available volumes of some food was down – about 25% across most potatoes and root crops.

The worst hit areas in the UK this summer were in the South-West where a huge proportion of  UK crops are produced. Ian Johnson, south-west England spokesman for the NFU, said this year’s weather had led to a “mixed picture” for arable farmers.

He said while wheat crops had suffered, winter barley yields were up 1.6%; spring barley yields were down 7.4% and oilseed rape yields were up 5.9%.

But still for some such as Paul Harris, an arable farmer in Dorset, the difficulties look set to continue. He said, “I’ve been farming now for 40 years and it’s the worst harvest I have ever known.”

Anitox feed safety and milling efficiency confernece

Distributors, agents and guests from around the world gathered in the Czech Republic at the end of September to attend a feed safety and milling efficiency conference organised by Anitox. A pioneer in its field, the company develops, manufactures and markets pathogen elimination, mould control and milling efficiency programmes for the feed milling and primary meat and egg production industries.

Amongst those who attended the three-day event at The Park Inn in Prague, were delegates from Asia Pacific, Poland, Turkey, Benelux, United Kingdom, Egypt, Germany and Iran. Other countries represented were Baltic States, Belarus, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Scandinavia, Czech Republic, Iraq, Iceland, Ireland, Morocco and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The conference included a range of presentations to highlight issues which are currently impacting on livestock feed and food safety across international markets, affecting all involved in the supply chain. They included food and feed safety legislation in the European Union and non-EU markets, technical developments and how the Anitox range of products and services assist customers to meet current and potential challenges.

Summarising the conference Roger Mann, Regional Director for Anitox in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific, stated:

“Feed and food safety remains a major issue for all involved in meat production, processing and retailing throughout the world. Despite major efforts to control pathogens in feed, on-farm and during processing they remain a significant and ongoing challenge, while very high commodity prices are increasing the burden on all sectors of the industry, increasing the focus on efficient production at all stages.

“The range of solutions offered by Anitox is of increasing benefit to all sectors and we have seen a substantial increase in demand for our products, driven by more stringent food safety legislation, higher standards from retailers as well as greater consumer pressure for safer food.

“Anitox has 35 years experience in antimicrobial and mould-control technology in livestock feeds and raw materials. We are now at the forefront of the industry in terms of supplying products which provide safe feed to protect the health of livestock and consumers. We continue to invest heavily in Research & Development and have a pipeline of cutting-edge products coming through our programme. These will take Anitox into new areas and help livestock producers, feed manufacturers and food producers to meet future demands and challenges.”

The Anitox product line currently includes Termin-8® and Monoprene® bacterial control agents, the Maxi-Mil® milling efficiency program, MonoProp® and Punch® mould control agents, together with Blue Royale® water treatment and Sorb-It® aflatoxin binder. The business has an international network which supplies customers with top-quality products and the best technical, engineering, laboratory and customer support services.

Anitox now supplies many of the world’s Top 25 feed manufacturers. More than 32 million tonnes of feed/feed materials, representing 5% of worldwide animal feed production, are treated annually with Termin-8® to ensure they are pathogen-free, while many feed manufacturers use Maxi-Mil® to improve milling efficiency.
