FEFANA, European Probiotics Association partner to promote probiotics

Joint group to work on communication development, website in the works

The EU Association of Specialty Feed Ingredients and their Mixtures, FEFANA, and the European Probiotics Association have established a cooperation agreement to collaborate for the promotion of probiotics for animal nutrition. The two associations have joined forces with the aim to generate, develop and share their know-how and information on probiotics with feed chain stakeholders.

The joint group will work on a series of communication activities on topics already identified and related to subjects perceived as important and/or innovative for probiotics. A website is under construction to become a reference and an information source to those interested to follow-up developments related to probiotics. The joint group will operate within the FEFANA structure and make sure that their activities fit to the specialty feed ingredients industry overall objectives. Gérard Bertin, European Probiotics Association secretary general, will take care of the management of this joint group, with support and involvement of the FEFANA staff.
