Ricardo Santin is the new president of the International Poultry Council

Santin is the first Brazilian to command the world's highest poultry farming entity, which brings together 54 members (including associations and companies) from 30 countries, responsible for more than 73% of global poultry meat production and more than 86% of all global poultry export . In actual numbers, 130 million tons are produced annually, with a Gross Domestic Product in the global production chain exceeding US$220 billion. It is the stage for major sectoral debates, involving health issues, image promotion and other topics relevant to the development of the sector.

As the new president of the IPC, in addition to continuing the work promoted by his predecessors - Canadian Robin Horel and Jim Sumner, from the United States -, Santin will seek to reinforce the council's global presence, focused on issues relating to global health challenges (especially in relation to Avian Influenza), strengthening the image of the poultry chain and the council's representation among the main international bodies, among other points.

"It is an honor and a great challenge to assume the presidency of the IPC, at a particularly important time for the direction of global poultry farming. We have intrasectoral issues to overcome and themes that advance the global food chain. In this sense, we will work to build, in unison, solutions that achieve all links in the production chain within its purpose of producing food in a broad and democratic way, helping global food security and reaffirming the role of this fundamental protein", evaluates Santin.

Along with Santin, Richard Griffiths (British Poultry Council – BPC) as vice-president and Jim Sumner (USA Poultry and Egg Export Council – USAPPEC) as treasurer were elected to command the IPC.
