US event to examine impact of “animal rights activists” on poultry and egg industry

An assessment of how animal rights activists are all impacting the global poultry and egg industry is one of the key topics listed for debate during the 2017 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), which takes place in the USA on February 1 next year.

The Poultry Market Intelligence Forum, sponsored by the US Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) and the National Poultry & Food Distributors Association (NFPDA), will form part of IPPE, which runs from January 31 to February 2, at the World Congress Centre in Atlanta, Georgia.

“It is important to stay on top of current conditions and projections for the future that could affect the poultry and egg industry,” said USPOULTRY chairman, Paul Hill, adding that the forum programme will also explore business economics and production.

Speakers are:

  • Dr Paul Aho, Poultry Perspectives, who will discuss “Domestic and Global Drivers for 2017.”
  • Hannah Thompson, Animal Agriculture Alliance, who will provide a presentation on “Securing the Poultry Industry’s Future: Responding to Animal Rights Activists Threats,” and
  • Mike Donohue, Agri Stats, who will provide insight into “Performance Trends for the Poultry & Egg Industry.”
