IPC to return to Paris for its spring meeting

15-02-2012 | | |

Poultry organization representatives from around the world will gather in Paris next month for the spring meeting of the International Poultry Council (IPC).

The meeting is scheduled for March 28-30 at the Hilton Arc de Triomphe hotel.

Members of the IPC will engage in a discussion of various global poultry issues, and representatives of the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), and the Codex Alimentarius Commission will give presentations to the assembly. Also, members of the respective IPC member countries will give status updates of the poultry industries in their home countries.

The OIE, FAO and Codex have officially recognised the IPC as the organisation representing the global industry. In its previous meeting in Paris in 2010, members of the IPC met jointly with the OIE at its headquarters.

More than 25 countries are represented in the IPC’s membership.

Registration and hotel information is available on line at the IPC website.
