Feed safety certification

Feed has a significant impact on the safety, nutrition quality of foods of animal origin. Bureau Veritas’ certification services enable you to assure regulators and consumers that your feed meets the highest standards.

Feed is the first link in the animal food chain. As such, the high-yield production of nutritious, high-quality food products of animal origin starts with quality feed and feed ingredients.  In recent years, however, the animal agriculture industry has been hit by a number of high-profile health and safety scandals. Such issues are incredibly costly, both financially and reputationally.

Certification by Bureau Veritas to feed and feed component safety and quality standards like FAMI-QS and GMP+ enables you to improve your market access and demonstrate your commitment to safety and quality.
