FAMI-QS Certification

Proving your commitment to feed legality, safety & quality with FAMI-QS Certification

Feed Safety Challenge

The European Union has developed many food regulations in order to protect the consumer’s health. In the last few years, EU regulation has become even more complex, as many food safety crises have occurred due to animal feed. 

To ensure compliance with these laws and to improve feed safety and quality, the European Feed Additives Manufacturers Association has issued a code against which to be certified: FAMI-QS (Feed Additive and preMIxture System). Whether you are a trader or a manufacturer of feed additives or premixtures you need to ensure the quality, safety and legality of your products.

What is FAMI-QS?

The FAMI-QS code standard addresses feed safety, legality & quality based on the European animal feed Regulation. It covers both quality & feed safety management systems, traceability, product regulatory compliance… and many other areas.
