  • Dear Reader,

    2012 was a year we will not easy forget as the Euro crisis hit very hard the European economy, especially in the Southern part. It was also a year of common concern that our way of life has to change and that we need to put back our attention and focus on things which really matter: solidarity, honesty, respect, and humanity.

    Although we still believe that we need to change our view in how to deal with Mother Nature, the crisis is delaying a lot of decisions which urgently need to be taken: the objectives set by the society in which we live, are still very actual if not even more. So 2013, like 2012, will be a challenge for every one of us. It is time to reset the right balance between economical growth, social justice and environmental responsibility.

    The 10th Euro Fed Lipid Congress which took place end of September in Cracow, turned out better than initially expected. It clearly showed that also in our case, decisions to attend or not, are shifted more and more towards the dead lines set by ourself. Something we will need to take into account in our future congress organizations.

    The 11th Euro Fed Lipid Congress in 2013 will be for the first time organized by a new coming member Yabited, the Turkish Lipid group, which only became a full member of Euro Fed Lipid in 2010. The congress will be held in Antalya end of October (27-30 October), where it will also host the 30th ISF lecture series. This year subject is “Oils, Fats and Lipids: New Strategies for a High Quality Future”.

    Make sure to be there on October 27th. You will not regret it.

    2013 will also be a year where the next bi-annual Oils and Fats Munich trade show will be organized together with the Drinktec fair from 18 till 20 September.

    There are more events in 2013 supported by Euro Fed Lipid. Please have a look at the Euro Fed Lipid calendar (http://www.eurofedlipid.org/meetings)

    I’m curious to what 2013 will bring for Euro Fed Lipid and his growing member organizations.

    With my very best personal wishes to all of you for a “€-safer and more sustainable 2013,

    Marc Kellens
    President of Euro Fed Lipid

    Antalya and the Turkish Riviera

    Cited from http://www.onthebeach.co.uk/_d/turkey/antalya

    Antalya, located in a bay on Turkey’s southern coast is an incredibly popular holiday destination to thousands of tourists each year! One of Turkey’s main resorts in the Mediterranean region, the city is loved by many for its palm lined streets, charming marina, delicious restaurants, excellent shopping, cosmopolitan nightlife and lots of historical attractions.

    Ideally set against the backdrop of the Taurus Mountains that rise dramatically 3000 metres above the city.

    Known as ‘The Turkish Riviera’, Antalya offers a beautiful all year round climate and is the hottest region in Turkey. The beaches in Antalya are famed for their turquoise waters and beautiful fine white sands. Antalya's coastline is a place of contrasting beaches and secluded coves, sparkling seas and ancient harbours.

    For families, younger couples and groups, beyond the archaeological wonders, the Antalya area also has a wealth of outdoor activities and is host to numerous sporting events throughout the year, including international beach volleyball, triathlons and canoeing competitions

    The weather is one of the main reasons why Antalya is so popular! Boasting, on average, 300 days of sun each year and only a few days of rain, Antalya is a fantastic holiday destination all year round.

    The summer months in Antalya are absolutely beautiful, with the hottest months of July and August getting boiling! The summer months are long in Antalya, lasting from April until November. Temperatures range from 16ºC in April, rising to 28ºC in July and August and back down to 21ºC in October and 16 ºC in November.
