Global Feed Safety Platform

Feed Safety Multi-stakeholder Partnership

2016 - FAO

The role of animal feed in the production of safe food and its impact on public and animal health, feed and food trade, and food security is recognized worldwide.
However, in many countries adequate know-how and sufficient awareness are lacking. Even where more knowledge is available and control systems are in place, new and unconventional feed ingredients are entering the production chain (agro-industrial by-products, insects, food wastes, etc.), and with them, possibly new safety risks.
Many countries still lack feed regulatory frameworks and fail to implement feed regulations harmonized with the Codex Alimentarius and other international standards.
Recognizing that feed safety cannot be attained by one single action or by an individual player, FAO has launched a multi-stakeholder programme for capacity development for feed safety.
