On January 26, 2017, CIBE participated in a workshop entitled “Barriers and Opportunities to Valorising Agri-food wastes, co-products and by-products (AWCBs)” in Brussels, Belgium.

After 24 years as Director of CGB, Alain Jeanroy will retire at the end of 2016. He started at CGB’s economic service from 1983 to 1989, then worked as Director of the AGPM (General Association of French Maize Producers) before reintegrating CGB in 1993 as Director.
It will be the opportunity to address two major issues for the sector: the first quota-free campaign and risk management in the context of the future CAP 2020.
CIBE takes part in the AgroCycle project, a Sino-EU collaborative research venture, funded by the European Commission under its Horizon 2020 programme to create a protocol for the implementation of the 'circular economy' across the agri-food sector.
Throughtout the year, CIBE organise meetings, such as General Assembly or Congress which allow to share information between its Members and discuss several topics.
CIBE's Staff also attends several external events.
