International NSP forum planned for March 2014

The inaugural Inspire: International Non-Starch Polysaccharide (NSP) Forum addressing the development and use of NSP enzymes in animal nutrition is set to take place between 31st March and 2nd April 2014, in Pitlochry, Scotland.

Sponsored by AB Vista, a global supplier of micro-ingredients to the animal feed industry, the Inspire Forum 2014 will bring together over 70 leading academic and industry experts in NSPs and NSP enzymes for three days of technical presentations and discussion workshops.

"Bringing this collective expertise together provides a fantastic opportunity to promote open discussion, and will create a unique forum for debate on the wide-ranging issues relating to NSPs in animal nutrition," states Dr Nell Masey O'Neill, AB Vista's research and development manager.

"By clarifying NSP misunderstandings, highlighting the mechanisms by which NSP enzymes act and examining the reasons behind product performance, Inspire Forum 2014 will also seek to define those potential directions for future development most relevant to the needs of the marketplace."

A full agenda, plus confirmed speakers, will be released during the coming months, and posted to the dedicated website, inspireforum.com.
