The American Feed Industry Association is accepting applications for its second Information Technology Innovation Award, to be awarded in early 2012.
The award, sponsored by AgGateway and Feed & Grain Magazine, celebrates technological advancements in the feed and food industry. AFIA invites member-companies to tell about innovative technologies, including any benefits and results accrued, that have increased the success of the company. Finalists will be selected by the staff at AFIA and the award sponsors. The winner will be recognized at AFIA’s board of directors meeting in May 2012. In addition, the winning company will be profiled in Feed & Grain Magazine and AFIA publications such as AFIA Journal. Finally, a donation will be made to the charitable organization of the winner’s choice.
Applications may be submitted by February 15, 2012. Questions about the program should be directed to Sarah Novak, AFIA’s vice president of membership and public relations, at 703.558.3574 or email@example.com.
