FAMI-QS CODE OF PRACTICE
The FAMI-QS Code of Practice provides requirements for implementing measures necessary to ensure feed safety and quality of products manufactured by processes. These requirements concern good manufacturing practices, the HACCP programme and suggestions on continuous improvements to the design, management of operations and risks with the goal of maintaining feed safety and quality.
The ultimate goal of this Code is to ensure feed safety by minimising unsafe practices and the risk of hazardous ingredients entering the food chain. Feed is considered unsafe if it is likely to pose a risk to (has adverse effect on) human or animal health, or if the food derived from food-producing animals is unsafe for human consumption.
Moellhausen got a certification, here attached, for the following area: Production and trade of specialty feed ingredients made by chemical and extraction processes. Category K, FI.
