European Pest Management Day 2008 targets the food industry This year's European Pest Management Day (EPMD) is to concentrate on the European food industry. Organised by the European Pest Management Industry Association (CEPA), the event on 27-28 November 2008 is, once again, to be held at the stylish and modern Silken Berlymont hotel in Brussels, Belgium.

The food industry from the auditors, through the manufacturers, to the retailers are major clients of the European pest management industry. In addition, they also have an increasing influence on the standards and techniques practiced within this rapidly expanding international industry.

Commenting on the event, Robert Stuyt, CEPA President said: "Building on the success of last year's inaugural event, this year's EPMD is to concentrate on the European food industry - a key market for our industry. We will focus on those food sectors where we work in tandem with our clients. In addition, the regulators who play an increasingly role on all our activities will be involved. With this approach we can address the ways in which the pest management industry can work in partnership with the food industry to mutual benefit."

EPMD starts on the afternoon of 27 November with an open session where CEPA will update the industry on the progress of its many projects. This session is open to all and everyone is welcome to attend. This will be followed by a reception and gala dinner with a high level European Commission guest speaker.

The conference session on Friday 28 November will be chaired by Norman Rose from the European Business Services Round Table. Speakers will include Dr Frank Meek, International Technical Director of Orkin Pest Control, USA who will provide an American perspective. He will be joined by speakers representing the international food auditing, manufacturing and retailing companies.
