Invitation: Workshop on sustainability and responsible sourcing of marine ingredients
EUfishmeal is happy to invite you to a workshop on sustainability and responsible sourcing of fishmeal and fish oil on Friday 25 October 2019, 10.00-17.00 at Axelborg, Axeltorv 3, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Sustainability is top on the agenda throughout the seafood value chain.
At this workshop we focus on the different perceptions of sustainability and how the fishery, the governments, the industry, the feed and petfood manufacturers and the retailers and consumers can work together to define and implement clear criteria for sustainable production and use of marine resources.
Good management of the fisheries and full traceability of the fish from the catch to the producer is already in place in Europe, but how can we get this message through to the end users?
Participation in the workshop is free of charge.
