The Belgian and European Feed Manufacturers associations take pleasure in announcing the XXIX FEFAC Congress to be held on 3-5 June 2020 in Antwerp (Belgium).
The main objective of the Congress would be to present, debate and sign a joint FEFAC Feed Sustainability Charter 2020-2030, highlighting top priorities and tangible commitments to improve the sustainability of our industry in line with the FEFAC Vision 2030.
Therefore BFA has given the task to research this. Boerenbond and ABS also participate in this study. In the project, the net contribution of the Belgian livestock farming to the protein supply for men is being evaluated.
The edible net proteinefficiency will be determined for pigs (animalcategory fatteners), for poultry (animalcategory laying hens and broilers) and for cattle (animalcategory dairy cattle and beef cattle). The results are to be expected at the end of 2019.
Research and advise firm Profundo publishes in Juni 2019 a study comparing 17 different sustainability standards. The BFA standard also was being reviewed.
During the comparison it was highlighted to avoid deforestation and conversion of natural areas near soya production. The standard of BFA had a positive evaluation and is among the best 5 evaluated sustainability standards. A great result! The entire study is available to read here.
