Organised by AEMIC, the alumni association for technical schools and companies in the cereal industry, JTIC is an opportunity to talk, discuss, meet, and learn in an unparalleled atmosphere. With companies developing, regulations evolving and climates changing, the wheatflour-bread industry is more than ever a focus of political, economic and social debate. JTIC conferences strive to provide accurate information on four topics: Sustainability Cereal sustainability can be addressed at international or industry level (hard wheat in France, for example), and clearly also at individual company level. Some of the questions the session hopes to answer include: • What are the prospects for sustainable supply at international level? • How do we measure the sustainability of an industry? • What research projects are being conducted? • Is it possible to be both sustainable and competitive? Cereal operators, scientists, farmers and policy-makers will be there to present their approaches to this challenge. Road transport The logistics of road transport is essential to cereal industry operators and is subject to numerous regulatory changes. A conference 56 | September - october 2013 chaired and led by Bernard Valluis at which operators, cereal professionals, and regulation and transport players will offer answers on strategic directions for industry professionals. Hot topics include opening up of highways to 44-tonne trucks, the eco-tax, food safety in transit and town centre traffic restrictions.
