FAMI-QS: the quality and safety system of reference for specialty feed ingredients and their mixtures
FAMI-QS is the internationally-recognized 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. Recognized by the European Commission, the stringent certification process covers the complete lifecycle of processed sensory additives, functional feed ingredients and premixtures – 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.
“We are very proud to have completed the FAMI-QS certification process with flying colours,” said Dr. Peng Xianfeng, CEO. “As a trailblazer in NPGs, it is our responsibility to lead by example and this certification confirms Insighter’s commitment to ensuring that Quality, Health, Environmental and Safety concerns are an integral part of the way we conduct business.”
Besides FAMI-QS, Insigher’s Nanxiong Site had already secured several certifications for Quality, Safety and the Environment with, for example, the ISO 9001 (Quality Management System), ISO 22000 (Food Safety Management System) certifications. The FAMI-QS certification means that its site can now also be proud to have attained this internationally-valid recognition of their Feed Safety Management System.
