‘Global Inspiration | Local Practice’ is the leitmotif of this edition of VIV Europe, a global exhibition and conference programme in the animal protein sector for the production and processing of poultry meat, eggs, red meat, and fish and dairy
Renate Wiendels, senior project manager of VNU Europe, the organiser of VIV Europe, said, “A truly inspirational area located at the show entrance will welcome you onsite with more than 35 innovative agri-food concepts waiting to be discovered and replicated in the world.”
The show serves as the optimal platform for global supply chains while promoting the importance of bringing back farmers to a more central role. The ‘HubOrange! Inspiration Square’ is said to provide practical answers to the increasing consumer demand for sustainable food production.
‘The Round Egg’ circular concept and the ‘World Food Center’ are examples of innovations that make food supply chains shorter, future-proof and transparent for all stakeholders involved.
Innovation and technology to lead farmers into the future
Visitors will be presented with 20 Innovations in hall 9, whilst many other exhibitors are expected to reveal numerous cutting-edge products and services at their booths all around the showground.
The organisers say that this year’s edition presents innovative services and technologies specifically enabling farmers and breeders to improve production, with a focus on the poultry and egg sector. From gender-specific broiler breeder watering systems to automatic farm data collection and precision poultry farming, new pathogen control feed materials, effective lighting recipes systems, and the latest feed ingredients to optimise feed digestibility – these and many more newly released products are aimed at easing day-to-day farm operational challenges.
