From 6 to 8 September 2011 took place in Digne-les-Bains, France, the 30th edition of the “International Days of Essential Oils & Extracts” and the third PAM (Medicinal and Aromatic Plants) annual International Conference.
The "International Days of Essential Oils and Extracts" Digne-les-Bains 2011 conference aimed to join producers, scientists, technicians and users of essential oils to discuss the latest agricultural, scientific, technological, analytical and regulatory requirements.
MANE participated to this event. Expert in raw materials, Jean-Pierre De Mattos, Director of the Ingredients category was one of the speakers.
The essence of his speech is resumed in the following lines:
“Raw Materials, mirror of the World
The revolutionary idea that marks the frontier between old worlds and new world and the birth of modernity, is to dominate and to control risk. We will remember, through concrete examples, the different forms and origins of crises that impact our producers, processors and manufacturers. And we'll defend the idea that future might be something else than the result of the whim of Gods and that men are not totally disarmed facing nature."
