13/06/2016: Biomin announces 2016 World Nutrition Forum speakers

“The opportunity to bring researchers at the forefront of technology together with leading industry professionals in a scientific forum that stresses networking and the exchange of ideas on this scale in the industry is unmatched,” explained Dr Eva Maria Binder, Chief Research Officer at Erber Group, speaking about the World Nutrition Forum in Vancouver, Canada scheduled from 12 to 15 October 2016.
Over 800 industry professionals, researchers and academics from across the world are expected to attend the 7th edition of the biennial World Nutrition Forum, the premier animal nutrition event hosted by Biomin.
‘Driving the Protein Economy’ will be the theme of this year’s forum.
“Geographically, the modern livestock industry spans roughly one-third of the planet’s ice-free terrestrial surface. Structurally, it is organised into long market chains that employ more than 1.3 billion people worldwide. Nutritionally, livestock products contribute nearly one out of every five calories consumed by people and offer all the essential amino acids our bodies require,” explained Dr Binder.
“The rapid pace of technological advancement will continuously redefine the industry in the coming years,” she added.
“The importance of scientific innovation cannot be overstated. The Earth’s finite resources and growing population require us to pursue a sustainable agenda alongside profits. Knowledge sharing underpins these efforts,” noted Erich Erber, founder of Biomin and member of the supervisory board of Erber Group.
“Biomin maintains a longstanding commitment to research and development on meaningful topics related to mycotoxin risk management and gut performance management that set it apart,” he added.
