“Acting on behalf of the fishmeal and fish oil producers and their trade associates, IFFO works to strengthen the global standing of the industry, while supporting responsible supply worldwide. With a network of members reaching across 50 countries, our members account for over 55% of world production and 80% of the fishmeal and fish oil traded worldwide. While these products are the core of our industry, recent years have seen a widening to include marine algae cultivation and the production of meal and oil from krill. Our members include producers, traders, feed companies, edible oil refiners, retailers, financial institutions, governmental and non-governmental organisations.
IFFO's activities are governed by a Board of Directors made up of 15 representatives who provide strategic direction for the organisation. Board members are elected from the organisation's Producer Members, eight of which are from Latin America, four from Europe, one from North America and two more are nominated from the rest of the producing countries. A President and Vice-President are elected from these 15 representatives and the board elections take place every two years.
The Secretariat is led by the Director General, Operations Director, Technical Director, China Director and Chief Analyst. Working across three offices in London (Head Office), Lima and Beijing, our team has strong international roots with staff from 6 countries who speak 8 languages between them, including Spanish, Chinese, Italian and Norwegian.”
