Annual Conferences

Every year IFFO hosts the world's only conference dedicated to the fishmeal and fish oil industry and its value chain partners. Hosted at a different city of the world each year, the annual conference attracts well over 400 delegates plus companions, drawn from over 40 different countries.

The conference venue rotates between three world zones: the Americas; Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA); and Asia and Australasia. The first annual conference of the IFFO organisation was held in Paris in 1960, and since then we have been in five different continents (see list of past conference). Currently the annual conference has a three day format, from Monday to Wednesday, and is usually held in October or November. 

A typical programme includes a balance of conference sessions, social functions and time for networking.  Please note that Market Forum 1 is only open to delegates who are Producer Members or Premium Non-Producer Members of IFFO.
