This year has got off with a big bang as far as Aquaculture without Frontiers (AwF) is concerned and generally we could not be happier with its progress; although we will not be resting on our laurels as we still have much to do.

The giant news was that The Charity Commission of the UK has confirmed that the registration of Aquaculture without Frontiers (AwF UK), as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. AwF (UK) CIO status will see a few changes to AwF (USA-Global) and AwF (Australia) in that it will connect with the milling and grain industry as well as its usual connections with the seafood industry.

This new UK charity will see a unique program created, initially called ‘Loaves and Fishes,’ which will enable it to attract donators, sponsors and supporters to engage in either milling and/or aquaculture programs as they are established.

Roger Gilbert, publisher of this magazine, is the inaugural Chairman and Trustee for AwF (UK) CIO. Rogers company produces Milling and Grain magazine (first published in 1891), the International Milling and Grain Directory as well as this magazine.

“Milling is pivotal to affordable, safe and plentiful food supplies – from flour, cereal and rice-based foodstuffs to animal feed rations, our publications deal in technological advancement throughout the transport, storage and production chain and in nutritional developments that improve the efficiency and safety of food production globally” Mr Gilbert said, adding that “As the industry’s oldest magazine, we are particularly keen to see the continued and timely transfer of that information to make a difference in the poorer countries of the world.”
