In September of this year, Redox achieved certification with FAMI-QS after being certified by DNV Business Assurance Australia Pty Limited.

What is FAMI-QS? 

The ultimate goal of this Code of Practice is to ensure feed safety by minimising unsafe practices and the risk of hazardous ingredients entering the food chain. Animal feed is considered unsafe for its intended use if it is likely to pose a risk to (has adverse effect on) human or animal health, or if the food derived from food-producing animals is unsafe for human consumption.

The FAMI-QS code of practice provides requirements for implementing measures necessary to ensure animal feed safety and quality of products manufactured by processes, as defined by FAMI-QS. The code covers requirements on good manufacturing practices, on the HACCP programme and suggestions on continuous improvements to the design, management of operations and risks with a goal of maintaining feed safety and quality.

The scope of FAMI-QS is specialty feed ingredients. A specialty feed ingredient is defined as any intentionally added ingredient, not normally consumed as feed by itself, whether or not it has nutritional value, which affects the characteristics of feed or animals/animal products and animal performance.

The Feed Chain Activities covered by FAMI-QS are Production – The processes and methods used to transform tangible inputs (raw materials, semi-finished goods) and intangible inputs (information, data) into goods and Trade – The action of buying, handling, storage, transporting and selling goods and services.
