AFIA creates petfood manufacturing facility certification program

    The American Feed Industry Association recently announced new third-party facility certification programs designed specifically for manufacturing pet food and pet food ingredients.
    The Pet Food Manufacturing Facility Certification Program and the Pet Food Ingredient Facility Certification Program were developed by the association's pet food and quality committees with input from third-party food safety experts. The association says the two programs were based on its Safe Feed/Safe Food program and are designed to monitor the process controls specifically related to pet food manufacturing. The two pet food certification programs were designed to meet requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act regulations, and the association is currently seeking approval by the US Food and Drug Administration.
