DPI GLOBAL is pleased to announce that on August 4, 2016 we received FAMI-QS (Feed Additives and Premixtures-Quality System)/AFIA (American Feed Industry Association) International Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification. This achievement certifies that DPI GLOBAL has implemented and maintains a Feed Safety Management System including Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) in compliance with, FAMI-QS Code (Version 5.1, 2014-02-14) AFIA International Safe Feed/Safe Food, at our Corporate Office and Manufacturing Facility in Porterville, California.
FAMI-QS is an internationally recognized, third-party certification that is the quality and safety system for specialty feed Ingredients and their mixtures. FAMI-QS is related to the enforcement of the European Union’s Feed Hygiene Regulation (183/2005/EC) through the implementation of a Feed Safety Management System.
The AFIA International Safe Feed/Safe Food Program was designed to help facilitate U.S. trade with European feed and ingredient customers by providing a tool to illustrate compliance with the European Union’s Feed Hygiene Regulation (183/2005/EC). AFIA and the European Feed Additives and Premixtures Association (FEFANA) have signed an agreement providing reciprocity for firms in the International Safe Feed/Safe Food and FAMI-QS programs.
FAMI-QS/AFIA International Safe Feed/Safe Food certification by DPI GLOBAL is valuable not only to our clientele in the European marketplace, but to our customers around the globe. European Feed Management Systems such as FAMI-QS are recognized as the standard throughout the world and certification within these quality management systems are instrumental in facilitating trade within the economically important European Union.
Participation by DPI GLOBAL in FAMI-QS/AFIA International Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification, as well as other Quality Assurance programs like AFIA’s domestic Safe Feed/Safe Food program and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) are just more examples of our commitment to providing quality technologies and services that meet our customer’s needs.
