for Safe Feed
The aim of the Association for Safe Feed, VFK, is to proactively work to achieve safe feed materials for production of safe animal feed, thereby contributing to food safety.
The Feed Safety Standard is based on EC and national legislation, following the principle of precaution and HACCP*. These far reaching laws and principles have been interpreted by VFK in consultation with the National Veterinary Institute, SVA, and formulated as 18 items that describe the VFK Feed Safety Standard.
Feed material producers are certified according to the VFK Feed Safety Standard regulated by the independent control body, SVA.
* HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) is defined by Codex Alimentarius Commission, Joint FAO/WHO Food Standards Programme.
