“We concluded an inspiring conference with enthusiastic and forward thinking people,” says Global Feed Safety Summit host and GMP+ International managing director Roland van der Post. In his 3 day summit roundup he looked back at a very fruitful gathering of key industry players. A much needed face-to-face event to set the feed agenda for years to come with the participants commitment to take the next steps forward.
Feed without safety is not feed, it is poison
‘Feed without safety is not feed, it is poison’, this quote of one of the participants of the Global Feed Safety Summit 2022 couldn’t be more true. If anything, the 3 day Summit made clear that feed safety is essential and it also need constant attention and further development. Industry leaders sharpened their minds, discussed the latest innovations and trends and came up with a list of actionable results. “We have shown that the feed industry is always at the forefront and that is exactly what we need going forward,” Van der Post comments. Under his supervision a number of developments and pressing issues were spotlighted. “We heard experts on new feed materials, new technologies and had intense talks with each other about our carbon footprint and sustainability efforts. Of course, our core business is in feed safety, which can never be taken for granted. That said, we have the framework, the connection and the expertise within our certified companies to facilitate more than just feed safety.”
In the course of the Summit, the organising committee explored 3 topics, which will have an impact in the years to come. Van der Post: “I am proud that we reached such a concrete result.”
Van der Post concludes: “In our ‘pressure cooker’ event location in the wonderful city of Berlin, we were able to take the first steps in organising commitment among each other. You can’t wish for more as a summit host.”
