Adisseo, manufacturers of nutritional solutions for animals, has been granted FAMI-QS certification for the production of the amino acid *Rhodimet AT88 at its Nanjing production site in China.
The certification attests that Adisseo has implemented and maintains a Feed Safety Management System including Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) in compliance with the FAMI-QS code.
FAMI-QS is the internationally-recognised certification system for specialty feed ingredients, the primary objective of which is to ensure compliance of certified companies with the EU’s most stringent feed regulations, and ultimately protect consumers’ health. Recognised by the European Commission, the stringent certification process covers the complete lifecycle of processed specialty feed ingredients and their mixtures – from raw materials, processing, transportation and storage by the manufacturer to sale of the finished product. It also requires implementation of a procedure to handle customer complaints.
Certification is valid for three years and can be renewed on the basis of a new full audit or continual assessment. This proactive, systematic approach guarantees that manufacturers integrate best practices into their core activities.
*Rhodimet® is an amino acid primarily used in the poultry and pig industries. Adisseo produces the amino acid in both in liquid form (Rhodimet® AT88) and in powder form (Rhodimet® NP99).
