Alltech receives FEMAS certification
                                     

 

Alltech recently obtained Feed Materials Assurance Scheme (FEMAS) certification at four of its plants, assuring that certain materials produced by the company at these sites satisfy the stringent controls applied to animal feed manufacture with regards to quality assurance, traceability and selection of raw materials.

 

Alltech's Nicholasville plant, US, was awarded the certification based on the evaluation of its range of silage inoculants. The plants in Springfield and Kentucky, US and Alexandria, Ontario, Canada received certification for the manufacture of Bioplex® organic trace minerals.

 

The São Pedro, Brazil plant was assessed on the manufacture of the following products, Bio-Mos®, Mycosorb®, Sel-Plex®, and NuPro®.

 

Since its commencement, the FEMAS feed materials scheme has been based on Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) principles, an internationally recognized, detailed system of hazard analysis.

 

FEMAS is a British based technique of assuring the quality of feed ingredients being imported into the UK and Ireland and is known to being equivalent to the major EU quality schemes, such as Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS), Feed Additives and Pre-mixtures Quality System (FAMIQS) and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP+).

 

The FEMAS scheme involves the sourcing and production of feed materials, tracking them back to the countries of origin. FEMAS-certified companies are a diverse group, ranging from food additive manufacturers to food processors and brewers.
