The production of safe and healthy food of animal origin starts with the safe and healthy feeding of animals. That is why the FASFC invests considerable resources to inspect animal feed.
The quality and safety of this feed is crucial since it can have an impact on animal health, on the products made from these animals, and even on the environment.
The term animal feed also encompasses pet food. This is because, even though we don't eat it ourselves, the health of our animals is our concern. For these animals too, it is vital that the food produced is safe and healthy. That is why a significant number of requirements applicable to cattle feed also apply to pet food.
