Kristi Krafka, vice president of regulatory affairs and quality assurance for the animal nutrition and health division of Kemin in North America, will serve as the chair of the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) Feed Regulatory Committee. The two year appointment concludes on April 30 2014.
“Kristi is a valued member of the committee and for two years has served as vice chair with great distinction,” said Joel Newman, AFIA president. “Kristi brings a wealth of regulatory knowledge to this position and when the committee leadership recommended her appointment to chair, I whole-heartedly agreed.”
The AFIA Feed Regulatory Committee monitors the federal and state regulatory agencies and meets with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) to represent the interests of the feed industry on manufacturing practices, labelling requirements, and the uniform feed law. The committee also maintains a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) subcommittee and liaisons with all segments of the feed industry.
AFIA is the world’s largest organisation devoted to representing the business, legislative and regulatory business of the US animal feed industry and its suppliers. Members include more than 525 domestic and international companies and state, regional and national associations.
