New international dairy conference “Milk exporters of the future” will take place during EuroTier 2018 on November 14 – Event will examine how globalization of the milk market will be affected by growing milk production in countries that traditionally imported dairy products – Organizers are the DLG and the Russian Dairy Research Center
A new international conference taking place during EuroTier 2018 will focus on global trends in the dairy market. Jointly organized by the DLG (German Agricultural Society) and the Russian Dairy Research Center (RDRC), and supported by media agencies Agrovery.com and The DairyNews, the event, “Milk exporters of the future”, will be held on 14 November from 10:00-13:30 in Room 3B of the Convention Center (CC) at Hanover Exhibition Center.
Recent decades have seen a dynamic growth in milk production in traditional exporting countries, and this intensification of trade and capital investment flows has resulted in considerable globalization of the milk market. More recently, however, milk production has been growing in the countries that traditionally imported dairy products. Both post-Soviet and Asian states have significant development potential, and in the near future they could begin competing with the current global players in the dairy market.
At the new conference taking place at EuroTier 2018 on November 14, representatives of government agencies and industry associations will engage with experts from these future exporting countries to discuss the impact of global trends on regional markets, as well as discussing key industry issues and sharing their experience of exporting to third countries. Key speakers from Russian, Belarus, Ukraine, Iran and Lebanon have already agreed to take part.
Starting at 10:00, the conference will be conducted in German, English and Russian, with simultaneous translation available. Visitors to EuroTier will be able to participate free of charge, although for organizational reasons prior online registration will required.
