Liquid feed fat supplier, Adams and Green, says that testing for undesirable substances in the final blend, rather than just testing the incoming raw materials, is the most “feed safe” method of operating and that it minimises the risk of a product recall.
The East Yorkshire company, which is a major supplier of liquid feed fat to the UK animal feed compounding industry, maintains that its “positive release” approach “avoids any problems that could occur with the feed during blending or storage”. As a result, all the company’s blends are only released for sale once the various test results are shown to be satisfactory.
The company’s comments followed the confirmation that it had passed its yearly FEMAS certification “with flying colours and no action points” following a recent audit.
FEMAS is recognised by major retailers in the UK as a key link in the chain for the supply of safe food.
