Cargill Polska gets EFISC feed safety approval

Cargill's starch processing plant in Wroclaw, Poland has been audited by Bureau Veritas and has been evaluated as being in compliance with the EFISC requirements. Making it Cargill's 13th production site to get European Feed Ingredient Safety Code certification.

“We are very happy with the outcome of the EFISC certification process” Mr. Maciej Klimowicz, Quality Manager, said “The EFISC certificate is a strong achievement reflecting our efforts to produce safe feed materials for the European market. The EFISC certification, providing harmonised EU requirements, will make it easier to do business with our trading partners in other EU countries”.
 
The European Feed Ingredients Safety Code promotes good practices in the industrial manufacturing of safe feed materials. The code was developed as a result of the shared commitment between the starch industry (AAF) and the oilseed crushing, oil refining and protein meal industry (FEDIOL) within the framework of the European Feed Ingredients Platform (EFIP), which provides a harmonised, voluntary feed safety assurance scheme for the feed materials industry in the EU. The code is open to other feed material producing sectors to join.
 
The aim of the code is to provide safe feed for animals and consequently, to consumers further up the food chain by making the best use of the industry’s experience and expertise. To achieve this goal, the Code provides guidance for companies on how to establish their own feed safety management system in accordance with the relevant EU legislation. The code includes requirements for management systems, prerequisite programmes, risk control (hazard analysis critical control points), withdrawal and traceability.
