> WHY YOU WANT TO SEE THIS LA­BEL ON YOUR AN­I­MAL FEED

NZ Lifestyle Block - - IN THE ORCHARD -

LOOK OUT for the Feed­safenz ac­cred­i­ta­tion la­bel when buy­ing an­i­mal feed, an as­sur­ance to you that the feed is man­u­fac­tured to the high­est pos­si­ble stan­dards to en­sure it’s safe for your live­stock, and the safety of the hu­man food­chain.

Feed­safenz ac­cred­i­ta­tion is only avail­able to NZ Feed Man­u­fac­tur­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion mem­bers who pass in­de­pen­dent au­dit stan­dards. They un­dergo a strin­gent test­ing regime that in­volves a thor­ough on-site au­dit of their plant, stor­age fa­cil­i­ties and oper­a­tions.

“High qual­ity feed is vi­tal not only for the health and well­be­ing of an­i­mals but also for hu­mans,” says NZFMA’S Michael Brooks. “It’s im­per­a­tive that feed is man­u­fac­tured to strict guide­lines and is packed and stored cor­rectly to en­sure its qual­ity is main­tained.”
