On 27 July, the Belgian National Security Council convened to introduce more stringent security measures to restrict a new flare-up of the Corona virus. In addition, the Antwerp local authorities have taken even stricter measures and will not allow events in their territory during the next 4 weeks.
Therefore, after careful consideration, the organising committee has decided to adapt the meeting format and organisation of the XXIX FEFAC Congress of 24-25 September 2020.
The Board of Directors of FEFAC, the Covid-19 workshop, the launch of the BFA Sustainable Charter, FEFAC Sustainability Charter 2030: Highlighting top priorities and tangible commitments & "The European Green Deal - The Farm to Fork roadmap towards a carbon-neutral livestock economy" / COVID-19 impact on food security in the European Union will be held in a different physical location. A web streaming service will be offered.
Already paid participation fees will be refunded if a physical participation is not possible. A separate registration will be offered to join the web streaming service for the event. Fefac and BFA will inform about the modalities in the near future.
