The 4th Global Feed & Food Congress, GFFC, organized by the International Feed Industry Federation, IFIF, with technical support by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, will take place for first time on the African continent on April 10–12, in Sun City, South Africa. The Honorable Ms. Tina Joemat-Pettersson, South Africa’s minster for agriculture, forestry and fisheries will open the congress proceedings in front of an international audience of more than 600 delegates representing the global feed and food chain.

Hosted by the Animal Feed Manufacturers Association of South Africa, the GFFC will bring together a line up of over 80 international speakers, including global leaders, dignitaries and participants from civil society, academia and industry. The discussions will cover the whole feed manufacturing and food processing value chain, with a special focus on feed and food safety, food security, technology and sustainability.

“The theme for the 4th GFFC ‘Safe Feed & Food for All' links to the global challenge to feed 9 billion people by 2050 and to do so sustainably," said Mario Sergio Cutait, IFIF chairman. "I believe this theme reflects the aspiration of the whole feed and food value chain and I know that IFIF’s view on sustainability matches this aspiration: produce more, using less, at an affordable cost to the consumer.

“Our aim, together with the FAO and our regional partners, has always been to provide a global platform for industry, experts and governments to come together to discuss critical issues of food and feed safety, technology and sustainability. As our ambitious agenda illustrates, the 4th GFFC can rightly claim to be another leading example of these efforts.”
