IFEEDER Requests Donations For Silent Auction at Purchasing & Ingredient Suppliers Conference

Date Posted: February 10, 2012

IFEEDER, the Institute for Feed Education & Research, represents a passionate mission: "To sustain the future of food and feed production through education and research."

IFEEDER will sponsor a silent auction at both receptions during the Purchasing & Ingredient Suppliers Conference from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 14 and Thursday, March 15 in Orlando, Fla.

The purpose of the auction is to raise funds to support IFEEDER’s programs.

This mission is the culmination of AFIA's and many other industry contributors' work over the last year bringing this Institute to life.

IFEEDER will address the many challenges and opportunities we have as an industry to help realize the demands for a growing American feed industry as the world's population grows from the current 7 million people to 9.1 million by 2050.

Over this period, the world's demand for safe, high quality food will nearly double and our industry will play a key part in addressing this need.

Through targeted investments in education and research, IFEEDER will help develop the know-how, understanding and insight to remain on the cutting edge of providing the ever-increasing nutritional needs our world will require heading into the future.

Your primary industry association, AFIA, has taken a significant leadership role in the areas of legislation and regulatory policy, monitoring and shaping both to address our interests; but AFIA cannot do it all.

IFEEDER will fill the gaps in addressing the education and research needs required to further solidify the four cornerstones for the sustainability of our industry.

IFEEDER is a 501(c)3 organization and any donations, either corporate or individual, are tax deductible by U.S. IRS law.
