GMP+ International has signed a cooperation agreement with the Iran Feed Industry Association. This will help Iran to step up its feed safety control.

The Iranian feed sector has potential to become a significant player on the world feed market, but quality, including animal feed safety, remains a challenge. Therefore, GMP+ International and the Iran Feed Industry Association (IRFIA) signed a collaboration agreement. This agreement is the initial step towards obtaining a GMP+ Feed Safety Assurance certificate, which makes Iran able to comply with international standard and domestic demands.

The main goal of the agreement is to update Iranian feed companies about safety management and risk assessment in several parts of the feed (supply) chain, hence implementing GMP+ FSA certification and data exchange about perceived feed safety risks and analysis result.
