Joerg Seifert will take over the position later this month
Joerg Seifert has been appointed as the new FEFANA Secretary General to assume the duties on June 15. Seifert is of German nationality and holds university degrees in food technology and in business administration. He has gained major professional experience through working at technical director level with the trade association representing the global dairy sector and partnering with many other livestock sectors since 1998. He succeeds Didier Jans, who left the association in April after 15 years. Dorothea Schiemann – who has been serving the association as ad interim Secretary General in the meantime – will ensure a smooth handover. In the words of FEFANA President, Marco Bruni: “Joerg is fully motivated to lead the association through forthcoming changes to build a stronger FEFANA effectively addressing our industry’s challenges of today and of the future.” Seifert strongly believes that the European Specialty Feed Ingredients industry has a vital role to play in the feed and food chain for achieving sustainable food security and that FEFANA is the only organization that can defend an appropriate policy and regulatory framework in the EU to secure product innovation and growth of the industry.
