International Feed Education Forum at 2014 IPPE

On Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014, the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) will offer the International Feed Education Forum, held on the second day of the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE).

The forum will address issues unique to feed manufacturers.  The half-day event, held from 8:30 - 11:30 a.m., will feature three sessions discussing topics impacting today's feed manufacturers. Keith Epperson, AFIA's vice president of manufacturing and training, will open the forum, presenting on the latest regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Richard Sellers, AFIA's senior vice president of legislative and regulatory affairs, will discuss the implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and other government compliance rules such as the Veterinary Feed Directive. The final speaker, Dr. Henry Turlington, AFIA's director of quality and manufacturing regulatory affairs will discuss FSMA Hazard Identification Requirements. Sellers, Epperson and Turlington will focus their talks on areas that directly impact today's feed manufacturers and what managers need to know on how to abide by the regulations.

The 2014 International Feed Expo will be integrated with the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association's (USPOULTRY) International Poultry Expo and the American Meat Institute's (AMI) International Meat Expo into the single, large trade show – the IPPE. IPPE will be hosted in Atlanta, Ga., Jan. 28-30, 2014.
