New website about Safe Feed/Safe Food certification program

A new website that provides details about the Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program was launched by the American Feed Industry Association last week.

The URL for the new website www.safefeedsafefood.org. The new site also may be accessed via AFIA’s Web site (www.afia.org) by clicking the “SF/SF” tab at the top of the AFIA home page.

The Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program is an exclusive, voluntary, third-party-certified program for mills and other facilities that produce livestock feed, pet food and related ingredients.
About 330 US and Canadian facilities, operated by about 80 companies, are certified by the program.
The National Pork Board’s Pork Safety Committee endorsed the program this spring, and an international version of the program will launch later this year.
The Safe Feed/Safe Food program stands for reducing risks; tracking and tracing products; protecting hard-won brand value; lowering product-liability insurance rates; and decreasing waste, shrink and customer complaints. Prioritizing safety is “Our Responsibility, Our Promise.”
