EU launches new feed industry group in Belgium



The European Feed Technology Center (EUFETEC) was officially launched in Belgium on September 15.


As a representative of the EU's feed industry, EUFETEC's mission is to support the feed sector innovation through research, develop guidelines, organize trainings and set up service provision to help companies.


The organization sent a questionnaire to different European countries to identify the key priorities for producers of feed additives, premixtures and compound feed. Research priorities for the organization include cross contamination and residues of certain molecules in meat, milk and eggs with respect to feed and food quality and safety.


EUFETEC said the evolution of energy and feed material prices will encourage the feed industry to increase energy management and use alternative feed ingredients as a protein source. The organization also plans to offer training on employee occupational health and dust explosion.
