The National Office of Animal Health (NOAH) held its fourth Food Chain conference, Feeding the World, at the Royal Society on Tuesday 15th February 2011.

NOAH heard from Professor Andy Peters, MD of Arpexas Ltd and visiting professor at the University of Nottingham, about how existing and new animal medicines and advances in science can be used to help meet these challenges.

Among the speakers was Dr Gabriel Oluga Aboge of the Central Veterinary Laboratory, Kabete, Kenya, who spoke about Africa’s need for a technological revolution in animal science to feed a growing population and strengthen economies that relied heavily on pastoral farming.

Other speakers included Neil Parish MP (Former MEP and ex-Chairman of the European Agriculture and Rural Development Committee) and Professor David Leaver of the Royal Agricultural College.

George Gunn, Chief Executive of Novartis Consumer Health, spoke about the requirements of the animal health industry in terms of free innovation and allowing advances in medicines to reach markets in a sensible regulatory framework. The Chairman was former dean of Cambridge Veterinary School, Lord Soulsby of Swaffham Prior.
