The new Fenavian is a dynamic federation that responds to the needs of its members, that acts rapidly and accurately to actual situations, and is a trustworthy partner where information can be shared and lessons learned. Fenavian keeps you up to date with what is happening in the political and other industry related organizations.
You should join for your business, because thanks to you, today the industry can be represented with an organisation that will facilitate your business development, and that will ensure that your needs are recognised and taken into consideration at all levels.
Today, a lot of challenges are influencing your business. Before, you could develop a great business by having a great product, sadly those times have passed! Today you have to be a business man, an expert in the environment and marketing, be up to date with the latest technologies, consider and implement all the relevant rules and laws but also be able to find your way through a myriad of information that comes your way each day.
The market changes, there are a lot of international threats but opportunities also exists. There is so much legislation, there are so many regulations and developments in environmental affairs, but also developments at nutritional and labelling level. Additionally one has to contend with public affairs and the prevention of negative publicity; Now more than ever, the industry needs a strong federation that can support and protect during such periods of strain.
This is what we want for our members: a very present federation, a strong federation that represents its members in consultation with the retail, with farmers, with people from the full supply chain to ensure that decisions are taken with full due care and consideration for our sector and our companies.
In order to have a presence in all existing discussions, we have decided to join forces with serveral organisations: FEVIA, CLITRAVI, Unizo,… The food industry is the strongest industrial sector in Belgium and meat processing is one of its largest components.
Fenavian is also a member of several boards of directors and consultation platforms, for instance we are a member of PC 118, the food platform of Unizo, we are on the boards of directors of Belpork, Antibiotic Register, animal welfare working groups, pig sector group, cattle sector group, poultry sector group, regional products, … and we are a fixed discussion partner for Public Health, Employment, Economy, Agriculture, FAVV, universities and research institutions, and several European organisations.
We clearly keep our independency, but by joining several organisations, we have the opportunity to acquire a lot of expertise and knowledge. As a member of FEVIA we can appeal for expertise and assistance on environmental, nutritional, scientific research and social matters but also share contacts with the press, marketing and promotion, networking and contacts, trainings and international possibilities.
A better corporate image, a more professional communication, standing up for your rights, a more directed information flow, … These are only possible if we collaborate and unite our forces to reinforce our sector. Because that is what we all need.
By unifying our voice can be heard in consultation with other parties from the supply chain by authorities at Flemish, Walloon, Federal and European level.
