What is FAMI-QS
FAMI-QS (Feed Additive and Premixture Quality System) is a standard code that addresses safety, quality and European regulatory compliance of specialty feed ingredient and their mixtures. The feed is considered unsafe for its intended use if it has adverse effects on human or animal health or the food derived from the food -producing animals is unsafe for human consumption. Over the years the European Union (EU) has developed many regulations to improve the safety and quality of feed additives and pre-mixtures. The standard code of practice, namely FAMI-QS Code, has been issued to ensure compliance to these regulations.
