Most notably, the ACFF launched their 24th local Chapter during this year's Summit.
The FDI Annual World Dental Congress, which each year brings together oral health leaders, advocates and members of the community for an important global discussion on topics such as promoting oral health and caries prevention and management, is the ideal venue for us to host the official launch of the Thailand ACFF Chapter," said Dr.
Since launching globally in 2010, the ACFF has founded local Chapters in regions across the globe, spanning Asia, Europe, Central and Latin America, Australasia and Africa.
The Pan-European ACFF Chapter has undertaken efforts to expand collaboration between organizations across Europe and driven meaningful dialogue with various stakeholders from public, policy, media, patient and dental professional audiences.
Over the past five years, the ACFF Chapter in Colombia has committed to working jointly towards adapting the global ACFF goals while focusing on improving early childhood oral health.
The work being done by the local ACFF Chapters showcases a true commitment to our collective goal of a cavity-free future," said Dr.
Global activities have included providing tools via local ACFF Websites, securing commitment from dental school deans to integrate caries prevention and management into school curricula and promoting community-based education and prevention programs to families and communities.
The acquisition brings both, substantial assets and revenues to the company, stated Robert Marsik, president of ACFF.
The international trading business has tremendous growth potential and the combination of international trading with the ability to ship products sold, far surpasses the revenue potential that ACFF had in the gourmet coffee business.
The acquisition was accomplished through an exchange of ACFF Convertible Preferred shares for 100 percent of the outstanding shares of Megahel and Mill-Agro.
