First Global Milling Conference to be hosted in India

First Global Milling Conference to be hosted in India | How to FEED 9.3 billion PEOPLE by 2050 | Scoop.it

There's a new conference on the horizon for millers and the milling industry! It's the 1st Global Milling Conference for milling that covers both food and feed topics. It will be held in Chennai (formerly Madras), India, from February 7-9, 2013.

The organisers are Assocom-India, the publishers of Wheat Update that circulates throughout the sub-continent, and Perendale Publishers, the publishers of Grain and Feed Milling Technology magazine which serves millers and those associated with the milling industry around the world. The programme outline for the three-day event can be found at: http://assocom-india.com/gmc/index.php

"We are in the process of confirming our speaker line-up and our sponsors," says Mr Raj Kapoor of Assocom. "We are still open to receiving applications for both speakers and sponsors and would welcome all companies and millers with a global interest in our industry coming to this important event. India is a growing market both for our national suppliers and for international companies supplying both equipment and ingredients."

The two organisations are coming together with the aim of creating a meeting place in a major developing country which has easy access from South East Asia, Africa and Europe and is a cost-effective venue. Beginning with a day of registration and a reception, the meeting proper will focus on food and feed milling issues and will offer a comprehensive range of topics from:

Day Two (Friday, February 8, 2013)
• Reviewing India's grain production, global supply and demand for feed and for food followed by a key note address by Professor K.V. Thomas, the Minister of State for the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution.
• Food security
• Feed Safety and Supply
• Food Safety
• Feed Milling Developments

Day Three (Saturday, February 9, 2013)
• Storage and Transportation
• New Technologies
• Feed and Food Extrusion
• Colour Sorting and Process Developments
• Closing Keynote Address
"India is a unique and diverse country. The common factor is that the milling industry across this country is developing rapidly despite a challenged economy," says Mr Roger Gilbert of Perendale Publishers.

"India is proving to be a foil for China and offers companies an opportunity the explore a production system that supplies a 1.22 billion people with their food needs - that's 16 percent of the world's population," he adds.

India is the fourth largest economy in the world with a GDP of eight percent and while there is a growing middle class, the overall per capita income is still just US$1000. Analysts expect it to rise to the third largest economy by 2035, growing to 60 percent of the size of the American economy by that time.

In addition, India is the world's second largest producer of wheat and rice and exports some two million tonnes to Africa, neighbouring countries such as Nepal and Bangladesh and then further afield to Africa and others. Per ha output of cereals and oilseeds in India continues to climb, yet still ranks between 30-60 percent of the best yields achieved in developing countries.

International visitors and speakers from the USA can expect to pay approximately US$1200 return via Mumbai and should allow a week to make the return journey leaving on February 5 and returning on February 10, 2013. Kayak.com is a good source of flight information - while two or three percent more expensive than the cheapest, they have proven reliable in our experience. The conference hotel is the five star Vivanta by Taj - Connemara Chennai and costs Rs.5300/single room (US$94) and Rs.5800/double room (US$106). These rates include breakfast and taxes.
