FEMAS Responsible Sourcing of Agricultural & Natural Products

Certificate Description

The Feed Materials Assurance Scheme (FEMAS) covers all feed ingredients intended for direct feeding to animals or for inclusion in compound feeds and blends. It is based on HACCP principles, a system originally pioneered by space agency NASA, but now forming the bedrock of EU Food and Feed legislation.

FEMAS is recognised by major retailers in the UK as a key link in the chain for the supply of safe food. The scheme is owned by the Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC) and provides accredited assurance of feed ingredients; it is required by the compound feed industry and Farm Assurance in the UK.

FEMAS is managed by the FEMAS Working Group which consists of a number of representatives of the various FEMAS sectors, independent consultants and representatives of the AIC executive.
