Event description

Description

As sustainability is getting more and more attraction, the meat industry is trying to maximise their benefits by optimising their production. One way leading to such optimisation consists in giving a high value to animal co-products, or making sure the current commercial applications are maximised. Making the most out of the animal (including by-products and co-products) is a way to be more sustainable, both environmentally and economically.
