GLOBAL EXPERTISE I LOCAL PRACTICE

Global food systems make us vulnerable in the time of worldwide crisis. In addition, the call of consumers for sustainable food production becomes louder. The role of Local food production is essential next to the Global supply chains. The Global and Local systems need to be brought into a suitable balance. When one system fails, the other can provide stability. To create this balance the local consumption needs to increase, which means that shorter supply chains are also required. For development it is vital to collect the correct knowledge and find the right partners.

VIV Europe 2022 provides the required Global expertise to boast the Local practice in a sustainable way. All activities & conferences feature this main topic.

It focuses on how current and future trends in feed, breeding & hatching, farming, health & nutrition, slaughtering and egg handling & processing may lead to develop a supply chain with fewer links. It emphasises on the fact that interaction between consumers and farmers is equally important as the interaction within the supply chain.

The theme comes live in Hall 9 at VIV Europe 2022.
