FAO's work on feed safety

Within its overall mandate of achieving food and nutrition security for all, FAO addresses animal feed and feed safety as: i) a prerequisite for food safety and human health; ii) a necessity for animal health and welfare; and iii) a component of access to trade, income generation and economic sustainability of the feed and livestock sectors. The FAO programme of work on feed safety include the provision of scientific and technical advice on which to base standards and guidance, the development of capacities and the facilitation of dialogues and partnerships among stakeholders in the feed and food sectors.
