The British Standards Institution, BSI, launches a new Publically Available Specification (PAS) for animal food and feed to further reduce food safety risks along the food supply chain.
PAS 222 - Prerequisite programmes for food safety in the manufacture of food and feed for animals - aims to ensure confidence in animal food and feed production by collecting good animal food, feed and ingredient practices from manufacturers around the world.
The new specification will potentially reduce production costs for those who adhere to the good practices it sets out and help manufacturers meet their clients’ ever-more stringent requirements to demonstrate the quality of their food safety systems.
Sponsored by SSAFE (Safe Supply of Affordable Food Everywhere), the specification was developed with broad stakeholder representation through a steering group including leading organizations such as the Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC), Cargill, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Foundation for Food Safety Certification (FSSC), Land O’Lakes, Nestlé and Nutreco.
