Alltech addresses traceability at conference
Uppermost in the mind of consumers in this age of
ecology is the safety of the food chain, from farm to fork, and its
environmental impact. Global agriculture is in the spotlight.
By rethinking technology and business practices, the nutrition industry
stands before a formidable opportunity - that of leading by example in forging
the greener road ahead.
Animal nutrition company Alltech recently announced that its 24th
International Animal Health and Nutrition
Symposiumwww.alltech.com/symposium/en/home.cfm , a leading nutrition conference
held from 20-23 April in Lexington, Kentucky, would debate the question, 'Can we
be remembered as the Greenest Generation?'
Traceability builds reputations
permeates every step of the feed and food chain, every ingredient, every formula
and every management choice. Traceability provides accountability and builds
reputations," said Dr Pearse Lyons, president of Alltech.
In a keynote address, David Byrne, former European Commissioner for Health
and Consumer Protection and a non-executive director at Alltech, will argue that
traceability is a green brand, the cornerstone of both consumer and
environmental protection. Byrne is a recognised expert in consumer confidence
and sanitary regulation. During his time as Commissioner, he was instrumental in
the establishment of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and European
Centre for Disease Control (ECDC).
Alltech's Symposium is an exciting time to share knowledge and gain new
insights into the nutrition industry. It's an opportunity too for individuals
throughout agribusiness to come together and discuss pertinent issues such as
traceability, supply variability and constraint, and using new technologies to
reduce the impact of agriculture on the environment.
Pig sector topics included in the pig session
that will take place at the conference will include:
