In the coming years, demand for animal based food products will rise substantially. This will not only have implication on the quantity and the trade volume of such products. What do consumers in the different regions of the world expect? What are the kinds of animal products and their quality they demand? What are the conditions under which consumers find, milk, meat and eggs acceptable? How to respect the planetary boundaries with growing demand and production requirements?
The event will address these questions and discuss challenges and solutions. A key note address will present the global trends in consumption, followed by a panel of government representatives from Asia, Africa, Europe and Latin America talking about the developments in their respective regions. In the second part, stakeholders from the production, refiners and retailers perspectives will discuss what can be done to meet the demand while taking into account climate change and the planetary boundaries. The panelists will also address the question of the contribution of the livestock sector towards the achievements of the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
