European Forage Association (EFA) has evolved originally from the French trade association CIPF and now acts as a platform to bring members from hay and straw associations from across Europe, together, for the mutual benefit of all.
- To facilitate the international exchange of straw, fodder, and derivatives.
- To defend, on an international level, the common interests of member organisations regarding the “product”, the “professions” of dealers in straw, fodder, and derivatives, and the “commercial function” in general.
- To represent the profession within and around official international organisations.
Through these objectives, the association seeks to attain:
- The study of all commercial questions relating to straw, fodder and derivatives.
- The permanent improvement in contact between member organisations.
- The establishment of international trading conditions, arbitration rules and practices.
- In general terms, all other appropriate measures.
