Senior oils and fats executives from around the world will gather in Izmir, Turkey this June for the Oils and Fats World Market Update 2011, a prestigious event designed for executives to discuss and evaluate global trade issues and industry trends impacting business development.
Held from 20-21 June at the Hilton Izmir, the event is organized by AOCS and chaired by Sefa Koseoglu, CEO of Bioactives World Forum. The Vegetable Oils and Fats Industrialists Association and Culinary Products and Margarine Industrialists
Association of Turkey serve as sponsoring organizations.
“The Oils and Fats World Market Update 2011 is designed to help you stay in front of the competition,” Koseoglu said. “Attendees will have the opportunity to network with executives from oils and fats, food, and oleochemical companies and hear about the latest industry trends, unique opportunities, and practical tools and techniques designed to help grow business.”
The Market Update will showcase world-class speakers and promote a lively discussion with leading CEOs and decision-makers as they delve into the issues relevant to all aspects of oils and fats trade, including production, trading, transportation, and regulations.
“During the last decade, Turkey has become the center of economic activity among
Eastern Europe, Middle East, and CIS countries,” said Metin Yurdagul, chairman of the board of the Culinary Products and Margarine Industrialists Association of Turkey. “Tremendous business opportunities have been created due to large liquid oils and fats consumption combined with the import of oilseed and crude oil and the export of refined oil and its by-products.”
Executives with interests in business management, processing, research, production, product development, marketing, technical service, and raw materials are expected to attend from across the globe, providing a multitude of networking opportunities for all attendees.
