Japan’s national feed association has become the latest member of the International Feed Industry Federation (IFIF). Its decision to join was confirmed at the 2010 Global Feed & Food Congress held by IFIF in Cancun, Mexico.


The Japanese association represents manufacturers in an industry producing about 25 million metric tons of feeds annually. It has also opened discussions with the international federation on creating a new North Asia Feed Association along the lines followed successfully by Fefac in Europe and Feed Latina in Latin America. The hope is to have the North Asian organization in place by the end of 2010.
