Dear friends and colleagues​

The French branch of WPSA has the great pleasure to invite you for the 26th WPC in Paris. After WPC2016 in Beijing, we are now preparing to welcome you all in Paris for WPC2022.

Agriculture in general, and livestock in particular, are facing major challenges in the near future. The poultry sector has major assets to meet the expectation of the world population, provided that it can anticipate changes needed for sustainable production systems. Our ambition is that WPC2022 brings a major contribution to these challenges for the benefit of the world population.

Our ambition is to prepare an affordable congress to attract a large number of participants from all over the world. We will give a special consideration to the Mediterranean and African Poultry Networks, by offering them the possibility of holding specific satellite symposiums and we plan to organise a symposium with FAO. As usual for a WPC, the program will include an exhibition for companies within the Congress Centre and we will offer a Youth program as well as a Young Scientist program. We will plan the scientific program to make it highly interactive and interdisciplinary. Finally, you can expect an attractive social program and excellent food.

The World’s Poultry Congress 2022

Local sector

In European Union, France ranks first for egg production, and third for poultry meat production. It is hosting major companies, at all levels of the poultry production chain, selection, multiplication, feed and premix , egg and meat industries. Many of these companies are global players in the field. The French poultry sector exhibits 3 unique features which will be illustrated throughout the WPC, and more particularly for the youth program and technical excursions.

A diversity of species

Chicken, turkey, Pekin duck, Muscovy duck, guinea-fowl, goose, quail, pigeon, pheasant, red and grey partridge.

France is thus a poultry-friendly country, from the producing to the consuming viewpoints and  will remain so in the future.

A diversity of production systems

Conventional, free-range, organic, etc… A strong asset of the French poultry sector is the definition of quality signs which rely on a list of requirements the producer has to meet in order to certify both the production system and the quality of the final product. The main quality signs are: the ‘Label rouge’ (since 1967), the ‘Protected Origin’, such as the Bresse chicken (since 1957).

Gastronomy, health and poultry

Several poultry products contribute to the French gastronomy which is
acknowledged worldwide. Poulet de Bresse, foie gras, ‘omelette de la Mère Poulard‘ in the Mont St Michel … are among our stars. Besides tradition, poultry products are also open to technological innovations, regarding egg or meat products.
Nutrition for health is a strong driver for innovation, as shown for example by the omega-3 enriched eggs.
