Animal Feed Certification

Food safety doesn’t apply just to humans. Ensuring the health and safety of animals is of critical importance, both in the livestock and pet food industries. Bureau Veritas is a leading partner of two certification programs: FAMI-QS and Safe Feed Safe Food (SF/SF). Together, these associations help ensure continuous improvement in the delivery of a safe and wholesome feed supply for the growth and care of animals.

Get FAMI-QS Certified

Looking to get certified for producing safe and quality specialty feed ingredients and mixtures? FAMI-QS is the world's leading food safety certification scheme for the animal feed industry specifically designed for international validity. Attain your certification with Bureau Veritas to demonstrate excellence and trust in your specialty feed ingredients, while also addressing feed integrity, defense and regulatory compliance.

For food businesses that specialize in international animal food or ingredients exports, FAMI-QS has collaborated with Safe Feed Safe Food to develop the International Safe Feed Safe Food Program (I-SF/SF). Attaining this certification demonstrates your commitment to feed safety with the opportunity to use both the I-SF/SF and FAMI-QS logos.
