April 2019 – Exposure-4-Development (E4D) is a program run over the years by the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ). This year the selected country is Brazil, and DeLaval has travelled together with IFAJ, showcasing dairy and its nutritional value.
During the first week of April, DeLaval joined the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists in their trip to the Parana region of Brazil, for the Exposure-4-Development program. This year, a group of selected journalists from countries all over the world such as Ireland, Germany, The Netherlands, Austria, UK, Denmark, Finland, Canada and USA, travelled together to learn more about farms, processors and companies aiding in the agricultural infrastructure of Brazil. In past years, this program has taken journalists to Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and China.
During the one week program, two days were focused on dairy farms and processors including Fazenda Fini, Fazenda ARM, Fazenda Rhoelandt, Fazenda Regia and Dairy Processors Frisia and Castrolanda.
“It is important to showcase the nutritional value of dairy as a key player in the challenge of providing nutrients to a growing world population. The Exposure-4-Development program is an excellent initiative and a way to learn how developing countries face the challenge of feeding the world,” says Lars Johansson, Senior Vice President Corporate Communications & Sustainability.
