As disruptors ranging from geopolitical tensions and higher freight costs to more stringent feed safety and environmental regulations challenge feed millers’ businesses, FeedTechnoVision 2024 is convening global experts to explore the issues, threats and opportunities influencing sustainable feed milling. The in-person program presented in Bangkok, Thailand, will be complemented by a hybrid global program focused on livestock on March 11. On March 12, an online program focused on aquaculture will be presented from 14:15 to 17:15. Registration is free of charge here.

Beyond reviewing the Asian aquaculture business landscape, the agenda for March 12 includes technologies and innovations to improve aquaculture feed production. The in-person program will consider enzymatic hydrolysis to improve the water stability of shrimp, present a South Asian perspective on raw material sourcing, and look at managing challenges during extrusion processes along with process parameters to improve pellet quality.

Topics covered in the online program include a look into unicellular organisms, drying processes to support nutritional quality and the application of artificial intelligence in aquafeed milling. Keynote speakers for both the in-person and online aquaculture programs include Dejan Miladinovic, Norwegian University of Life Sciences; Raghavendrudu Gullipalli, Nutreco India; Michel Periera, Andritz Separation Ind. Comp.; and Nguyen Van Anh, Nutreco Vietnam.

Pedro Caramona, category director Feed to Food Safety and Quality at Selko noted that FeedTechnoVision is designed to address the concerns of global and regional feed producers. “I am very excited to bring FeedTechnoVision back to Bangkok. Whether in the livestock or aquaculture sector, feed producers are being called upon to achieve high levels of feed safety while preserving margins at a time of intense volatility. FeedTechnoVision aims to strengthen the link between operations, quality, and formulation functions, which are all essential to optimize productivity, feed safety and animal performance.”

Caramona added that program content will address emerging technologies and opportunities for addressing the challenges feed producers are facing in 2024 and beyond. Presentations and discussions in both the in-person and online programs reflect the industry’s ambition to step into a more sustainable future.
