Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program

The Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program is a voluntary, independently certified program designed for the total feed industry. The Safe Feed/Safe Food program establishes comprehensive standards of excellence that go beyond existing regulations to maximize food and feed safety. Excelling at every aspect of feed production is “Our Responsibility, Our Promise” to regulators, customers and American consumers.

Effective October, 2013, the administration of the Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program, Pet Food Manufacturing Facility Certification Program and Pet Food Ingredient Facility Certification Program will be handled by Safe Quality Food Institute. The International Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program will still be a joint program between AFIA and FAMI-QS and administered by AFIA.

SQFI and AFIA signed a Joint Program Implementation and Marketing Agreement to bring these three AFIA third-party certification programs into the SQFI family of programs.

This Joint Program Implementation and Marketing Agreement will bring a number of benefits to Safe Feed/Safe Food program, Pet Food Manufacturing Facility and Pet Food Ingredient Manufacturing Facility program participants including:

    • Open access for their choice of multiple, approved certification bodies (CBs) for their audit;
    • It will exceed all of the independent creditability criteria required by consumers and regulators globally;
    • Using SQFI’s certification program will help reduce multi-program inconsistencies and associated costs of multiple audits;
    • Makes our programs the “feed segment” of the total food chain; and
    • SQFI is globally recognized and highly regarded.
