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.
