Feed and Feed Ingredient Manufacturing Committee

Purpose: Working cooperatively with the Food and Drug Administration, Canadian Food Inspection Agency, feed and feed ingredient manufacturers and other relevant domestic and international stakeholders, develop science- and risk-based regulations. Such regulations would support the implementation of effective inspection and compliance strategies as well as be useful in providing education and information to stakeholders.  The overall goal is to minimize the presence of chemical, microbiological and physical hazards in animal feeds to the levels necessary to protect human and animal health.
