PUBLIC NETWORKING EVENT: Launch of Code EFABAR 2023
30-30 May 2023University Foundation, Brussels
As Global Food Systems continue to face pressing challenges such as the climate crisis and biodiversity loss, food security has become increasingly important too. Furthermore, the EU Green Deal shapes the framework to develop more sustainable and resilient food systems in the EU, and animal-sourced food production faces additional challenges due to changing perceptions of animal farming.
EFFAB and FABRE TP are organizing an event to explore the role of animal breeders in developing new generations of farmed animals (poultry, ruminants, pigs, aquatics, and insects). We will discuss how breeding programs have integrated the concept of sustainable, balanced breeding and how it can continue to evolve to improve the resilience and sustainability of food systems.
During the event, we will launch the Code EFABAR 2023, the code of good practices for Responsible and Balanced Breeding.
Join us to be part of the conversation and contribute to shaping the future of animal breeding!
