IFFO awards industry leaders
SOME 423 delegates from 42 countries attended the 55th IFFO annual conference, which brought together the worldwide fishmeal, fish oil and wider marine ingredients industry to network and share information.
Held in Berlin from September 28-30, the event staged the first-ever IFFO annual awards, with Omega Protein and Zhonghai Ocean Science & Technology recognised as industry leaders. A judges panel, drawn from the management board of IFFO, considered submissions from IFFO members who demonstrated leadership or innovation.
‘We certainly appreciate the recognition of the company’s ongoing efforts to conduct the most responsible, sustainable and socially aware operations that we can,’ said Bret Scholtes, president and CEO of Omega Protein, which won in the leadership category.
IFFO announced that the next annual conference will be from October 24-26, 2016, in Bangkok, Thailand.
