The WATT Online Animal Forum: Feeding the Globe is designed to help animal agriculture executives meet the challenges of feeding the world’s growing population. This online event — scheduled for April 6 — offers a valuable mix of live webinars, networking opportunities and information on products and services from major industry suppliers.
Animal agriculture has enormous opportunities for global expansion over the next 30 to 40 years. United Nations projections indicate that the world population will grow from a current level of about 7 billion to exceed 9 billion by 2050, meaning that there will be 30% more mouths to feed. For company executives in the poultry and livestock sectors and their technical advisers, the question will be how to position the business to take advantage of the projected market growth.
“Everyone involved in the operation and strategic planning of enterprises in meat and eggs needs to be well informed about the key challenges that we will all face in feeding another 2 billion people worldwide,” says Peter Best, consulting editor for the international agrifood information services of WATT. “That is why WATT is organizing this special online forum.”
The forum, which will include a range of speakers from different disciplines and geographic areas, is free to attend and can be accessed through the Internet from the comfort of your home or office. Attendees may enter and leave the forum as their schedules allow.
