Sindirações receives EurepGAP recognition

The Brazilian Feed Industry Association – Sindirações signed an agreement with EurepGAP. With EurepGAP's recognition of its food safety and social responsibility standards, Brazil will be able to maintain, enrich and increase the access of its agriculture and compound products in the European Union, one of the main importers of feed and bovine meat.

The benchmarking agreement was signed during the II Global Feed & Food Congress, in Sao Paulo. EurepGAP was represented by its Secretary, Kristian Möeller. "This agreement is a milestone, achieved through the great efforts of both organisations, who worked together for a year to harmonise their guidelines. Brazil has already got a great concern in offering quality and safe products. With this benchmarking, its good manufacturing practices will be highlighted to a bigger audience. The farmers must be aware of the importance of certification though", says Möeller.

International level
The scheme level recognised by EurepGAP is the Internacional one – or Level 3 from the Feed & Food Safety Program from Sindirações. In addition to GMP and HACCP , it includes European management and legislation requirements. The benchmarking scope includes all premixes, livestock supplements, compounds and feeds. But it does not concern medicated feeds. This scope extent is a great victory for the Brazilian organisation.
