The Colombian Association of Swine Producers hosts every two years the 'Porciaméricas' National Convention, an event that gathers the whole swine industry of Colombia in one same stage. This year's convention took place on July 13,14 and 15 at the 'Estelar Santamar Hotel and Convention Center' in the city of Santa Marta. The event succeeded over a thousand attendees, mostly swine producers, technicians, professionals, students and others related to the swine sector in Latin America. Biotecno participated by sponsoring the badges of the event. In addition, our Technical & Commercial Director attended representing Biotecno along with other members of our staff.
