Science and nutrition-driven premix animal feed manufacturers Premier Nutrition have raised the bar for UK businesses by becoming the first of its kind to be awarded a Food Safety Certificate (FSSC 22000).
The animal nutrition specialist organisation – part of the AB Abri community, a group of leading agricultural businesses that operate across the food supply chain – went through an extensive paper-based accreditation process and in-person audit to confirm it met a set of strict criteria.
This achievement boasts the producer’s human-grade animal feed premixes, which aligns with their values of putting nutrition before anything else. Audits will take place yearly from now on to ensure the company continues to meet these standards.
As quoted in the PET GAZETTE, Jane Ratcliffe, Technical Services Manager at Premier Nutrition, states: “We’re the first and only premix producer in the UK sector to receive this level of certification, over and above the well-known Universal Feed Assurance Scheme.”
She later added: “We foresee that retailers may request this high level of transparency as far back as feed raw materials. This is why we’ve taken steps to ensure our whole supply chain is future-ready by meeting human grade food standards now.”
