CropTech-FeedTech at VIV Europe 2014

CropTech-FeedTech

The CropTech-FeedTech knowledge programme which has now become internationally renowned will also be one of the highlights at VIV Europe. On Wednesday May 21st, CropTech-FeedTech Conference will take place. The developments in this field are progressing so rapidly and are so vital for the production of animal protein that this theme has attracted massive international interest.

Sustainable intensification
Within the central theme of ‘Sustainable intensification’ the production of animal feeds is essential. The quality of the feed is a spearhead because this has such a massive influence on the quality of the end products for the consumer. The feed component is also a significant factor for the cost price of meat, poultry meat and eggs. The production of efficient, high-quality feed is therefore a main topic at VIV Europe.

The scientific world is discovering to an increasing level how the production chain can be managed by using technology and automation in these chains. It comes down to the ability to switch quickly between various protein-rich raw materials, depending on price and availability on the world market and tracking and tracing.

Focus on animal feed
At VIV Europe experts and exhibitors will be presenting their best knowledge and techniques in the field of feed production. Animal feed is also the theme of the opening congress on Tuesday May 20th. Exhibitors will be presenting all of the latest techniques and animal feed will be examined in depth. This will also cover topics such as ingredients, additives and veterinary medication – the latter also being of major importance since there is a direct relationship between food quality and food safety.

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!

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 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.
