The 2019 MVO Networking Event will take place on Thursday 21 March, 15.00-19.00 in Museum Pinsenhof in Delft. Come and participate in our event and join us for a great opportunity to network with Dutch and international oils and fats companies, government representatives, politicians, scientists and others.

At the event we will present and discuss the Dutch Minister Schouten's vision on Circular Agriculture and the developments regarding the European Protein Transition.

Confirmed speakers are Ursula Bittner (General Secretary of the Donau Soja Association) who will give her view on the opportunities for the European soybean production and James Fry (chairman of LMC International) who will talk about the impacts for the European oils and fats sector.
