FeedSafe® is the quality assurance and integrity accreditation program of the SFMCA. As feed mills complete FeedSafe® accreditation, they are listed on this section of the SFMCA website. If a feed manufacturer is not shown below they have not completed FeedSafe® accreditation.
SFMCA operates FeedSafe® as the quality assurance accreditation program for the Australian stock feed industry.
All full (active manufacturer) members of the SFMCA are required to comply with FeedSafe® to retain their Association membership. The central aspect of FeedSafe® is a Code of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), which has been developed in conjunction with the Chief Veterinary Officers within each state/territory, and the final document has Primary Industries Ministerial Council (what is now Agricultural Ministers’ Forum) endorsement.
FeedSafe® requires feed manufacturers to meet minimum standards in relation to:
Premises and mill buildings
Personnel training and qualifications
Plant and equipment
Raw material sourcing and purchasing
Raw material quality and storage
Feed formulation and manufacturing
Loading, transport and delivery to clients
Product inspection, sampling and testing
Customer complaint investigation
To obtain FeedSafe® accreditation, feed manufacturers are required to undergo annual site audits, these being conducted by independent third party food safety auditors.
FeedSafe® is a program aimed at increasing the commitment of the Australian stock feed industry to quality assurance and risk mitigation in the manufacture and use of animal feeds. For a long time now, the SFMCA via FeedSafe® has recognised the need for a broader industry approach to feed and food safety that provides a lower feed safety risk profile for the supply to Australia’s livestock industries. Feed manufacturers are required to implement HACCP as part of their accreditation.
FeedSafe has links with other industry QA programs and the SFMCA supports the programs such as those run by the Feed Ingredients and Additives Association of Australia (FIAAA), Australian Renders Association (ARA) and Australian Fodder Industry Association (AFIA). The SFMCA also works with the livestock industry peak bodies to ensure the FeedSafe program meets their requirements in the supply of feed to Australian livestock producers.
