About the meeting

Held every year at a different city, and running for over 60 years, the IFFO Annual Conference is the world’s only conference dedicated to the fishmeal and fish oil industry, which includes the processing of other marine ingredients, and its value chain partners.

We are looking forward to a very successful meeting – one which reflects the organiser’s strategy of applying science, technology and business analysis to the commercial concerns of the marine protein and oil sector and the related supply chains; these range from farmed seafood, to land animal and pet food nutrition as well as the human health omega-3 market.

Who will attend

We anticipate more than 450 delegates from around 35 countries will attend the Cape Town conference. Attendance to our conferences has remained consistently high, as shown below.
