Euro Fed Lipid Newsletter November 2009: Turkish Lipid Group Founded

Dear Readers,

during 6th Euro Fed Lipid Congress last year in Athens, a Turkish group of 28 participants from academic, industrial and governmental areas came together to discuss the possibility of establishing a Turkish Fats and Oils Group. A group of about 160 people dealing with research or production of fats and oils came together through the Internet and wished for a foundation of a Turkish Lipid Group. Some important decisions were then made to found the Group in its first meeting in January 2009 held in Adana by the 7 participating executive members. After preparation of all necessary documents, official application was made and finally the association has just been established. The main aims of the Turkish Lipid Group (YABITED) are as follows:
1.    Bringing people from industry, universities, institutes and goverment together on a scientific platform
2.    Working for the solutions of current problems in Fats and Oils and informing of the society about the developments
3.    Supporting research on Fats and Oils and organizing scientific meetings
4.    Making contribution to keep the quality of fats and oils products
5.    Joining Euro Fed Lipid as an Institutional Member

Persons and companies interested in joining the Turkish Lipid Group are kindly invited to contact me.

Be part of it all and profit:
It is easy to summarise the opinions that the exhibitors and visitors expressed after the fair: oils+fats 2009 ran very smoothly. With 2,600 visitors (2008: 1,200) from 99 countries (2008: 58 countries), the third oils+fats set some new records –among other reasons because it has established itself as the most important event that the international oils and fats industry has in Europe.
The next oils+fats, the International Trade Fair for the Production and Processing of Oils and Fats made from Renewable Resources, will be held at the M,O,C, Munich from November 24-26, 2010. Thanks to its new dates in 2010, for the first time ever oils+fats will take place overlapping with the 8th Euro Fed Lipid Congress in Munich. We would be pleased if you could also profit from oils+fats next year and hope to see you !
