The 55th Council Session of the International Sugar Organization (ISO) Council Meetings and one-day Conference will be held in Cairns, Australia in 2019.
The global sugar industry faces continual challenges and changes. To move forward in a sustainable and cost-effective way, the world’s sugar industry must analyse and understand: –
- Megatrends impacting agriculture
- Trade Flows – shifting patterns & outlook
- Forging the future for the Australian industry
- Social licence, food, health & nutrition
- Environmental & industry sustainability
ISO Members from up to 87 countries will be able to meet with Australian and international government policymakers, analysts, producers, millers, refiners, bankers and associated sugar industry sectors.
This event will tackle issues, share ideas and identify effective ways for a dynamic sugar industry. You can expect lively debate on innovation, fresh ideas, new initiatives and a reflection on the global sugar situation.
- Expect a full-day conference led by outstanding industry speakers and panellists
- Be informed, share your expertise and ideas in interactive sessions
- Take part in a full day industry tour
- Network and enjoy the social activities planned
This event is a chance for all involved across industry sectors to review global and domestic issues and contribute the synergy for ideas and vision to germinate.
Questions that impact the global industry must be addressed: –
- The world is awash with sugar: will lower forecast production offset the stocks?
- And what of El Nino forecasts which could affect crops in the Asia/Pacific region?
- Will production favour making ethanol, or will they tend towards more sugar in the coming years? World crude oil prices will have a large impact on this.
- What does the anti-sugar lobby and its arguments about obesity mean for the future of the industry?
The 55th Council Session of the International Sugar Organization (ISO) Council Meetings and one-day Conference opens the door for a productive exchange of ideas and information to extend understanding and perceptions of the changing scenario in the industry globally.
