Direct Food Ingredients is celebrating after achieving accreditation by the Universal Feed Assurance Scheme, a merchants’ standard introduced to regulate the production and delivery of livestock feed and the supply of feed from factory to farm.
The UFAS accreditation has been put in place to prevent feed safety incidents within the agriculture feed industry and is used to form the EU Food and Feed legislation. The main objective of UFAS is to ensure animal food that is supplied to UK farms is safe so that the human food chain is protected.
Steve Loake, managing director of Direct Food Ingredients, said: “Receiving the merchant accreditation means a great deal to us as we are now recognised as an approved supplier by UFAS. This means our buyers can rest assured that all of our raw materials meet the highest possible industry standards, giving everyone in the supply chain confidence and assurance of quality and consistency.”
