Legal & technical

On 28 January 2002 the European Food Safety Authority laid down the general principles and requirements of food law which regulates the production of animal feed for both food producing and non-food producing animals.

The regulations are there to ensure that feed is safe and does not have an adverse effect on human or animal health.

Feed safety is achieved in a number of ways and Brathadair does this by means of the following;

[The company seeks to be FEMAS accredited*] and this ensures that;

– All raw materials are identified and can be traced back to an     individual manufacturer or group of manufacturers.

– Samples from each production run are retained for analysis.

– Analytical testing is periodically undertaken by independent and fully accredited laboratories. This ensures that the quality our product remains consistent.

– The company undertakes risk assessment of all its manufacturing processes to ensure that at every step risk is minimized.

– The company is subject to annual inspection under FEMAS and is registered with the relevant local authorities
