Launched in 2011, the International Forum of Raw Materials is jointly organised every years by Nutrinoë and the Feedsim Avenir Association that brings together operators in the animal nutrition sector.
- To get the ball rolling, a convention is held with industry experts.
- Then, Nutrinoë has organised an Animal Nutrition and Food Industry Networking event so that industry players can meet and share ideas and experiences.
Feedsim Avenir Presentation
On 12 June 2007, the Breton animal feed sector as a whole decided to join forces within FEEDSIM AVENIR, an evaluation and foresight association, to “build and plan together”. Breton animal feed companies from the feed producer association (Nutrinoë), alongside their business and government partners – importers of raw materials and/or grinding companies, producers of raw materials, Breton ports, and livestock breeder associations – founded this association with support from the Conseil Régional de Bretagne.
The purpose of the association is to “build relationships,partnerships, and economic analysis between stakeholders in the agricultural and food industries, located primarily, but not exclusively in Western France, and public research institutes and regional and national authorities; to analyse and consolidate the competitiveness of animal production and the animal feed sector in its broadest sense”.
Some 40 businesses belong to the association and play an active role in its working committees.
Founded in 1991, in just a few years the Association of Animal Feed Producers (AFAB) became a highly representative professional organisation for a cutting edge Breton business sector.
In May 2013, the AFAB gave its communications an overhaul and changed its name, becoming Nutrinoë.
Nutrinoë’s animal nutrition companies come from both the private and cooperative sectors:
they produce around 9m tonnes of feed every year, accounting for almost half of national production, spread across over 50 production facilities.
In this context, Nutrinoë has a duty to build links and to remain accessible and close to everyday practices in order to best respond to the concerns of a constantly evolving sector, conscious of its role in the food supply chain, for maximum consumer benefit.
