Information

The objective of this III Congress is to define policies and mechanisms to assure that people of the world will have safe and sufficient food at all times. The paradise of Cancun will be the stage to present and discuss the subjects about production, sustainably, transport, process and distribution of raw materials and final products.

GFFC is the premier animal feed event globally. This is the 3rd time this Congress is being held and it brings together once again all stakeholders in the production and use of animal feeds along with all those working in the food chain - from raw material and ingredient suppliers through to integrators, processors, supermarkets and consumers.The key is to strengthen each and every link in the complex process of food reaching the consumer –from the way it is grown or raised, to how it is collected, processed, packaged, sold and consumed.

THE FOOD CHAIN: FROM FARM TO TABLE

Food safety is a global issue that demands a global response. The answer is very close to home -in the farms, fields, orchards and rivers– where our food has its source.

FAO is advocated a new approach to ensuring that the food we eat is free from food-borne hazards – everything from pesticides and industrial chemicals, through to unwanted bacteria and contaminants.

The key is to strengthen each and every link in the complex process of food reaching the consumer –from the way it is grown or raised, to how it is collected, processed, packaged, sold and consumed.
