GAFTA Collaboration Event

Friday, June 29, 2018

GMP+ International continuous seeking for partnership to organize seminars and workshops to deliver the message of the importance of feed safety. GAFTA responded to this call and had succeeded to organized 2 events recently


Beginning 2018, GMP+ International and The Grain and Feed Trade Association (GAFTA) agreed to collaborate in joint cross-promotional events participation in Asia and Middle East. The goal of this partnership is to work hand in hand in promoting feed safety and to provide basic knowledge about international grain trade conditions.

The Events

GMP+ International and GAFTA agreed to support the participation in VIV MEA in Abu Dhabi in February and VICTAM 2018 in Bangkok last March. Represented by GAFTA-Singapore Director, Jade Dyson, we held 3-hour seminars addressing MEA and ASIAN Regions readiness for the future of feed safety.

Prepared for the Future of Feed Safety?

This was an interesting topic we delivered in VIV and VICTAM, participated by companies from various sectors all over the Middle East, Africa and Asia. We focused on: What is feed safety and the importance of awareness. How feed safety certification may help companies to have access to the international market. Lastly, what are the trade assurance, conditions and policies if a company wants to  expand to other countries.

Aside from GMP+ International and GAFTA, we also invited several companies to provide testimonies and shared their success stories such as, Al Ghurair Food, Aliphos, Darling Ingredients and Trouw Nutrition.

We will continue to promote feed safety around the globe.
