AFTER a five-year hiatus, Livestock Malaysia 2023, the International Feed, Livestock & Meat Industry exhibition, kicked off its 10th edition at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
A total of 110 local and international stakeholders from 14 countries attended the trade exhibition, a focal point for the latest innovations in feed production, meat processing and livestock production in South-East Asia.
The event, which provided a platform for innovation, knowledge exchange and business opportunities, is poised to shape the future of the global livestock community.
A highlight of the event was the Malaysian Livestock Industry Awards 2023 (MLIA 2023), which recognised excellence and innovation within Malaysia’s livestock industry.
The award ceremony celebrated individuals and organisations, showcasing their outstanding achievements and their profound impact on the Malaysian livestock industry.
The trade exhibition also welcomed international pavilions from China and South Korea, fostering greater interaction among attendees and cultivating stronger business partnerships within the livestock industry.
These international pavilions served as a focal point for international collaboration, knowledge sharing and spotlighted each country’s strengths in the livestock industry.
Focusing on critical aspects of the livestock industry, experts spoke on topics such as enhancing poultry through science, agribusiness development, disease prevention, livestock sustainability and climate management.
The seminars provided attendees with the opportunity to engage directly with industry players, expand their networks and develop new business partnerships.
Led by the Department of Veterinary Services, the event was also attended by Informa Markets Malaysia co-chairman Gen (Rtd) Tan Sri Mohd Azumi Mohamed and Mtech Systems Southeast Asia and Oceania director of sales Nathan Lamb.
“I hope the discussions here will cultivate practical strategies, innovative solutions and long-term partnerships that will shape the future of our industry and serve as a catalyst for positive change and sustainable growth in the livestock industry,” said Mohd Azumi.
Prominent industry groups such as the Malaysian Veterinary Medical Association, Federation of Livestock Farmers’ Association of Malaysia, World Veterinary Poultry Association (Malaysia Branch), World Poultry Science Association (Malaysia Branch), and the Malaysian Animal Health and Nutrition Industries Association were supporting partners at the event.
