AUSTRIA - The World Nutrition Forum 2010 takes place next week, bringing together top international experts and decision-makers to discuss the key issues affecting the future of animal production, Biomins NutriEconomics programme, and the scientific, leadership and environment questions facing the feed sector today.

The 4th World Nutrition Forum will start in one week, attracting more than 700 delegates from over 60 countries to Salzburg, Austria for intensive discussions and expert talks on the most salient topics in the animal nutrition industry.

This biennial Forum, from 13 to 16 October, has become one of the industry's most significant scientific and opinion-leading events, with its thought-provoking discussions on the risks and opportunities facing global animal production. It provides important insights into the scientific developments at the forefront of animal feed and additive research, as well as examining future commercial strategies.

After a welcome evening on 13 October, the main programme will kick off on Thursday 14 October with a session on the animal production industry during economic uncertainty ('expect the unexpected'), followed by sessions on corporate responsibility (the 'dilemma of responsibility') and the threat of mycotoxins. The highlights of Friday 15 October include 'breaking new ground' and Biomin’s NutriEconomics® Program, designed to raise efficiency through effective nutritional expertise.

Eva Maria Binder, Chief Research Officer of Erber AG and head of the Scientific Committee of the World Nutrition Forum, said: "Calls for better ethics in science and more emphasis on sustainability have been growing ever louder."

The World Nutrition Forum 2010 is dedicated to examining how shifts in ethical, safety and environmental standards mesh with changing consumer tastes and demands for a more natural approach to the entire animal production sector.

The 2010 Forum will also include a chance to reward groundbreaking research with the presentation of the B.R.A.I.N. (Biomin Research and Innovation Network) award winner 2010.
