FierAvicola is by far the Italian dedicated event for the poultry supply chain. The exhibition is a ‘one stop’ show for the decision makers within this industry. Over those five decades it has established itself as the Italian business-to-business platform for the poultry industry.

As the leading trade fair in Italy in its sector, FierAvicola provides a comprehensive overview of innovative technology, services and genetics for modern poultry farming. In 2019, it will further focus on farm inputs such as feeds and ingredients as well as relevant innovative equipment and technology.

Starting this year, with the use of the computerized system for traceability of the drug and the entry into force in Italy of the electronic veterinary recipe, the sale and the actual consumption of veterinary medicines will be subject to a closer monitoring, so enhancing mostly the actions to combat AMR (Antimicrobial resistance). The antibiotic-resistance phenomenon is functionally consistent with the “One Health” concept, an approach formally recognized by the European Commission, the World Bank, WHO, FAO, World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) and various Research Institutes recognizing that the health of human beings is linked to animal health and the environment.
The European Parliament Resolution of 13 September 2018 on a “One Health” European Action Plan against Antimicrobial Resistance calls for “phasing out both the systematic prophylactic-metaphylactic use of antimicrobials in groups of farm animals, and to completely ban the use of “critically important” or “critical” human antibiotics for food-producing animals. On the occasion of the “World Week on Conscious Antibiotic Use” (on the last month of November) and the “European Antibiotic Day” (November 18, 2018), the Italian Ministry of Health published the “Guidelines for the promotion of the prudent use of antimicrobials in zootechnical farms for the prevention of antimicrobial resistance “.
