Our animals deserve high-quality and safe feed for optimal nutrition. This has positive effects on the quality of the animal products. As an important component of the food and animal feed chain, Brenntag has taken on responsibility for this by introducing and implementing a comprehensive quality assurance system. We have taken extensive measures in the areas of materials management, operational hygiene and traceability.
A comprehensive animal feed monitoring system was introduced in order to identify and assess possible risks to the safety of food and animal feed at an early stage. This ensures that suitable action can be taken to avert risks to animals and humans when specified parameters are not complied with.
The QS certification is recognised by various international standards, including GMP+ International, pastus+, AIC and EFISC.
With this certification, we aim to keep the quality of our products high, including in the animal feed trade, while also giving our customers the certainty that they are buying only top-quality feed from Brenntag.
Mutual recognition exists in the animal feed industry between QS and other quality management systems. Below is a short list of the most important quality management systems that are recognised by QS:
- GMP+ International (GMP+ FSA)
- OVOCOM/Bemefa (GMP)
- AIC (UFAS, FEMAS, TASCC)
- AMA (pastus+)
- EFISC (EFISC Aisbl)
