IPPE 2015 Report: Three days, one booth, many news and a vast number of contacts

The International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta, USA, is the world's largest annual poultry, meat and feed industry event of its kind. This year's show was the largest IPPE on record with an estimated 30,000 poultry, meat and feed industry leader attendees from all over the world. The show had 1,288 exhibitors with more than 490,000 net square feet of exhibit space. For the first time, Delacon had was amongst the exhibitors, showed the potential of its plant-based feed additives and presented a new product for profitable poultry production.

Increased pressure in terms of food safety, raising concerns about animal health and environmental protection, increasing feed costs, increasing antibiotic resistance, the imminent ban of antibiotic growth promoters in the US – alternatives to antibiotic growth promoters were the big talking point at IPPE 2015.

Delacon's vision is to replace antibiotic growth promoters with phytogenic feed additives and thus to ensure sustainable livestock production and food safety on a global scale. Therefore, the company's network around the globe is growing steadily. Recently Delacon expanded its sales structure in India and Latin America. The considerable number of existing and potential partners and customers visiting the Delacon booth at IPPE has once more proven the great interest in phytogenic feed additives. "We have received very positive feedback from customers, partners and journalists from all over the world, at IPPE, of course, especially from the US and Latin America" states CEO Markus Dedl and concludes: "The interest and demand for phytogenic feed additives has definitely risen and we will for sure host a booth at IPPE every single year!" In the previous years, the Delacon team consequently attended the exhibition, but in 2015, for the first time, Delacon had its own booth, of course featuring the new corporate design.


Besides the first booth, the new markets and the new corporate design, Delacon released good news on the organizational structure as well as the product range. With the beginning of the new year, Delacon created a Product & Innovation division. At the International Poultry Scientific Forum at IPPE, the new head of this division, Dr. Jan Dirk van der Klis, presented a new product for profitable poultry production under challenge conditions: Biostrong® Forte.


Phytogenic feed additives are among the top solution platforms in animal nutrition for the near future. IPPE 2015 has once more shown that the industry requires more than just products, but solutions: scientific knowledge, know-how, more than a quarter of a century of experience, training and consulting by experts – this is what Delacon provides for its customers around the globe.
