Why SUSTAvianFEED’s Presence Matters
Amidst the flurry of activity at SEPOR, the participation of the SUSTAvianFEED project, led by ALIA, took center stage. While SEPOR is closely associated with the pork sector, it is essential to recognize that animal feed plays an integral role within this dynamic industry. Here’s why SUSTAvianFEED’s presence at SEPOR 2023 is of paramount importance:

By participating in SEPOR, SUSTAvianFEED had the opportunity to showcase its groundbreaking work to a wide and diverse audience. This endeavor aligns perfectly with SEPOR’s theme of “Feeding the Future,” as it focuses on sustainable practices that can help shape the future of animal-origin products.
- Testing Eco-Label Designs: The fair provided a unique testing ground for the eco-label designs developed within the project, led by ALIA. This real-world exposure allows SUSTAvianFEED to gather feedback, refine designs, and ensure that the labels effectively communicate the sustainability of their products to consumers.
- Networking and Collaboration: SEPOR is not only a platform for showcasing innovations but also for building vital connections within the agri-food industry. SUSTAvianFEED had the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded professionals, exchange ideas, and forge partnerships that can further their mission of sustainable poultry farming.
