Thriving middle class
As India’s middle class is thriving, demand for ready-to-eat meat is growing. However, it’s not just the domestic demands that are growing. Animal product exports are also becoming an important part of the Indian economy. Consequently, the importance of delivering fresh and safe meat products with an extended shelf life is increasing. Meat safety can only be guaranteed if every step in the meat production chain is carefully monitored and controlled. To stay current with these developments, today’s meat business is about improving profitability, efficiency, health, transparency and quality.
For the conference program a wide range of topics has been selected, enabling professionals throughout the various parts of the production chains to improve their business for tomorrow. The main theme is ‘Livestock in Food Security’. Farmers, investors, integrations and manufacturers can choose from technical best practices and key trends, presented by institutions and international suppliers.
The opening session of VIV/Ildex India will take place during the first day of the conference on Wednesday 22 February.
