The Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program is a voluntary, independently certified program designed for the total feed industry. The Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program establishes comprehensive standards of excellence that go beyond existing regulations to maximize food and feed safety.
Trusted by FDA
U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials have expressed support of the American Feed Industry Association's voluntary Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program.
- FDA officials cite Safe Feed/Safe Food as a model program for feed and food professionals to rely on to achieve their goal of providing safe, healthy feed and food to their customers and consumers. Officials also say that those facilities participating in such programs will have fewer and shorter inspections as FDA expects these programs to be used in their risk ranking of facilities.
- The Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program exceeds industry regulatory requirements and complements the FDA's new risk-assessment approach.
