The use of feedstuffs is of major importance in the animal value-added chain for producing food and securing the supply. Due to the international flow of goods (from the import of raw materials to the export of food), industry has a great responsibility with regard to reducing the ecological burden while at the same time ensuring the efficiency and resilience of the markets in the event of crises and pandemics.
In this expert panel, the European Feed Manufacturers Federation (FEFAC and DVT) will present global and local opportunities for reducing the ecological footprint of feedstuffs for individual species, illustrate the effects regarding the achievement of climate objectives and discuss specific proposals for solutions in the procurement of agricultural raw materials. The panel will also highlight potential for the development of further measures, including bilateral government agreements and their limitations.
Social and environmental responsibility through organised sustainable supply chains is also of great importance in respect of sustainability in this regard. This will be discussed with stakeholders using the example of soya. The objective is to illustrate what contributions are possible for the Green Deal.
