Growth market Eastern Europe
Eastern Europe is a growth market for the world-wide ‘Feed to Meat’ industry. The Russian government is investing heavily in agricultural development programmes. Many of these schemes focus on the feed and meat supply chain, and the pig and poultry sectors are high on the list of priorities.
VIV Russia’s visitors campaign officially starts March 15. Starting on this date visitors can preregister on the special online page on www.viv.net. In addition, the trade fair organisers together with the exhibitors are distributing printed and digital invitation tickets in English and Russian amongst the desired visitor target groups.
The presentation of countries at VIV Russia includes official pavilions from China (Beijing Tech), Italy (I.C.E. Instituto Nazionale per il Commercio Estero) and France (UBIFRANCE & Bretagne International). China is represented with 9 companies, Italy with 11 companies and France with 15 up to maximum 18 companies. There is a special presentation with Spanish exhibitors as well.
Feedtech-Croptech will be presented for the first time at VIV Russia after the recent successes of this Pavilion at various VIV exhibitions worldwide. Participants in this presentation are Amandus Kahl and Awila (Germany), Bühler (Switzerland), CPM and Van Aarsen (the Netherlands), ESE (United States), Muyang (China) and Walinga (Canada). The concept of Feedtech-Croptech involves technology for the production of feed, food ingredients/inputs and fuel. The participating companies focus on the primary processing phases of crops. More specifically, the concept fully covers the production of feed, pre-mixes, pet food, flour, vegetable oil, raw material feedstuffs and (ingredient) foodstuffs, biomass and biofuel products.
