General Info

The Programme Committee of the AFMA Forum 2020 Organising Committee is focused on creating a world-class programme for AFMA Forum 2020, taking place at Sun City from 3-5 March 2020.

The theme for the AFMA Forum is ‘Explore today for a better tomorrow’, and the Programme Committee is extending an invitation to leaders of the feed and livestock industry sector to share their visions on the opportunities, challenges and solutions that will drive change in the South African feed and food value chain of tomorrow.

Forum 2020 will explore the challenges facing our sector. It will also aim to offer constructive and collaborative approaches to finding solutions, and ways of encouraging dialogue between the public and private sectors. The challenges faced by the feed- and livestock industry in South Africa today and in the future could include:

  • Meeting consumer expectations
  • Dealing with consumer  misconceptions
  • Conquering new biological frontiers (incl. antimicrobial resistance)
  • Environmental concerns (sustainability)
  • Socio-economic realities
  • Identifying regulatory constraints that could impact the industry
  • The Digital revolution and its impact on production and quality
  • Infrastructure constraints (electricity, fuel, water, roads etc.)
  • Traceability
