IPIFF – the International Platform of Insects for Food and Feed – the umbrella organisation of the European insect producing sector, is kindly inviting you to join its upcoming International Workshop on the 19th of November, entitled ‘Circular Agriculture – the Role of Insect Farming in Connecting Local Supply Chains’.
Organised in Brussels, this conference will focus on the contribution of the European insect sector to the objectives of the ‘Farm to Fork‘ Strategy. Notably, stakeholders active in different links throughout the insect production value chains, together with members of the civil society and representatives of the European institutions, will engage in a constructive dialogue on the contribution of insect farming to improving sustainability in the agri-food sectors. Among others, the speakers will focus their intervention on key societal challenges, such as the need to improve circularity in food production, potential to upcycle underutilised streams into higher-value protein rich-materials, but also the synergies between insect farming and organic agriculture.
The preliminary programme of the event can be accessed here.
Prospective participants are kindly invited to fill in the following registration form.
We look forward to welcoming you in Brussels on the 19th of November!
