James Taylor at the Global G.A.P. Summit 2010 London
Perendale's production manager, James Taylor, attended the 10th GlobalGap (Good Agricultural Practice) Summit, a two-day event held in London on October 7-8, 2010, to promote the Perendale's titles of International Aquafeed, Grain and Feed Milling Technology and the International Milling Directory. This year's Summit focused on a comprehensive farming program and was well attended with up to 800 people attending and including the conference's leading experts, representing more than 40 countries.
During the event, the new Version 4 of GlobalGap's Integrated Farm Assurance Standards was discussed and explained. While the meeting covered the organisation's traditional interests of fruit and vegetables, aquaculture and the livestock sector formed key themes of the conference. James reports that aquaculture in particular featured heavily in the Summit program.
He also reports that the Aquafeed stand received a lot of interest and proved a valuable source of contacts in terms of readers and contributors. He felt the whole experience of exhibiting at GlobalGap was productive and beneficial and passes his thanks on to all those who visited his stand.
