IPC Por­tu­gal Con­fer­ence

The In­ter­na­tional Poul­try Coun­cil (IPC) has pledged that the global poul­try in­dus­try will move to­ward a co­or­di­nated ef­fort aimed at ad­dress­ing an­tibi­otic re­sis­tance in an­i­mal agri­cul­ture.

At the IPC’S re­cent con­fer­ence in Es­to­ril, Por­tu­gal, del­e­gates from more than 20 coun­tries ex­am­ined the is­sue of an­timi­cro­bial re­sis­tance and agreed to is­sue a com­pre­hen­sive re­port in the near fu­ture. IPC mem­bers also dis­cussed their obli­ga­tion to en­sure that an­i­mals in their care are free from disease and as healthy as pos­si­ble.

“The IPC shares the public’s con­cern about an­tibi­otic re­sis­tance, which is an is­sue of global sig­nif­i­cance,” said IPC Pres­i­dent Jim Sum­ner, pres­i­dent of the USA Poul­try
