Hamlet Protein sponsors feed safety summit Germany
Hamlet Protein sponsored the Global Feed Safety Summit 2022 that took place in Berlin (Germany). The conference provided a platform for discussions on global feed and food safety, sustainability, and globalization. Hamlet Protein’s CEO Erik Visser participated in a panel discussion on Threats and Challenges for Sufficient Food Supply.
For many years Hamlet Protein has been working with GMP+ on certification for their business. The quality standard is well recognized amongst suppliers and customers alike and brings with it a consistent focus on quality across the entire supply chain.
The event in Berlin was attended by a broad group of industry professionals and provided great opportunities for networking around topics that will shape feed- and food safety issues in the coming decade. A team of Hamlet Protein’s lab & quality department joined Hamlet Protein CEO at the event.
Hamlet Protein CEO Erik Visser commented: “A growing world population is driving an increased demand for food. Even as alternative protein sources are (becoming) available, the demand for animal protein will continue to grow. To meet that demand in a safe and sustainable manner, the feed industry will have to build on its partnerships with animal protein producers across species and geographies. “
“The animal feed and animal protein industry has shown incredible innovation skills as it has dealt with challenges and regulations in past decades. When discussing EU policy making, there was a clear consensus in the panel that the EU should formulate targets rather than prescribing how to reach them. That will drive further innovation and motivate the industry to share insights and knowledge to improve together” added Visser.
“As an industry we could improve on our messaging around our commitment to sustainability and the progress made in recent years. We have a good story to tell and should that more often,” concluded Erik Visser.
