MFA Incorporated has been certified by the Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program administered by the American Feed Industry Association.
Becoming Safe Feed/Safe Food-certified means facilities demonstrate and ensure continuous improvements in delivering safe, wholesome livestock feed for the growth and care of animals. This is a one-of-a-kind, voluntary program that has resulted in the certification of about 330 feed-related facilities. Certified facilities go above and beyond federal requirements to ensure the highest standards in manufacturing and processing are followed each and every day.
MFA has received certification for six facilities as a successful participant in AFIA’s program,
AFIA’s Safe Feed/Safe Food certification program is open to companies that want to validate a commitment to food safety through proactive leadership. It signifies that qualifying companies have embraced the feed industry’s role in creating feed-based safety programs; they are doing their part to reduce food safety risks; they are participating in an approved risk-management program; and they are aggressively practicing risk reduction.
