will bring together Chinese and European pig production experts, from conception
right through to slaughtering. The event will take place in the EuroTier
Convention Centre on 12 November 2008 from 10.30 to 13.30 in room
The Chinese-European Pig Summit will bring together international experts

sector as well as breeding companies and feed industry specialists, along with

Growing consumer awareness
Drastic feed cost
increases and disease outbreaks have affected pig meat production and
profitability on a global scale, whilst increasing demand for pork and pork
products comes with growing consumer awareness about quality, traceability, food
safety and animal welfare issues. China is the largest producer of pig meat in
the world whilst Europe is the second largest exporter of this commodity.
The Chinese-European Pig Summit will address the current situation and
key developments in these two vitally important global pig producing regions in
terms of production efficiency and disease control as well as in relation to
global trade and marketing issues.
Among the presentations will be a
World Bank review of the global pork market, an overview of Chinese pig
production and its future from the China Animal Agriculture Association (CAAA)
as well as European perspectives provided by Danish Meat Association.
The Chinese-European Pig Summit is
hosted by the DLG in collaboration with partner China Animal Agriculture
Association (CAAA) and is supported by the European Pig Producers' Club. DLG is
the organiser of EuroTier, the world's largest exhibition for animal husbandry.
This year around 1700 companies from the sector will present their
technologies and innovations to over 120,000 international visitors. The
Chinese-European Pig Summit is by personal invitation that provides free
