The World Nutrition Forum: Getting to the Forefront of the Industry

Industry experts and top decision makers gather in Salzburg, Austria between October 13th -16th to discuss the future of animal nutrition, BIOMIN’s NutriEconomics® program, developments in science, business, the environment and leadership.

Herzogenburg, Austria, August 27, 2010 --( Less than two months to go before the 4th World Nutrition Forum opens its doors, this time in Salzburg, Austria, to welcome more than 700 delegates from over 60 countries around the world.

Held once every two years, the World Nutrition Forum has made its mark as one of the industry’s most significant and sought-after events for the thought-provoking and dynamic discussions that centre on real issues and trends influencing the future of global animal production.

“There are so many questions that we need answers for,” says Erich ERBER, BIOMIN’s Founder and Director of the Executive Board. “When can we expect a full upswing recovery? How will markets move or react in the near future? What are challenges ahead and where do the opportunities lie? How should we address the new issues on the agenda such as food security, consumerism and the carbon footprint of our products and production methods? “

Besides providing answers to these burning questions, BIOMIN’s latest programme, NutriEconomics® helps to address the issue of nutrition, profitability and performance by focusing on three core principles – nutrition, economics and the environment. These key considerations map out how efficient animal performance can be achieved alongside productivity and profitability in the business, and lay the foundation for the 2010 Forum’s theme and discussions.

The expert talks and panel discussions will bring together an exciting range of key note speakers, including Hannes Arch of Red Bull, Nancy Morgan from the World Bank/FAO and Professor Felicia Wu from the University of Pittsburg.

In the tradition of past Forums, the 2010 edition will also include a line-up of thought-provoking issues related to business, trade, science and leadership, including the B.R.A.I.N. (BIOMIN Research and Innovation Network) program that awards groundbreaking research work in animal nutrition.
