Please introduce to who engaged in feed industry that Japan never forgets the favor from Taiwan.”
Mr. Ito, chairman of Technical Committee of J.F.M.A. made explanation of the purpose of “JFMA’s Code of Practice for Safe Feed” as a private voluntary guideline for feed safety management as follows.
“This Code of Practice has been developed with the objective of providing a guide to safe practices for adoption throughout the formula feed manufacturing process in order to minimize the human health risks imposed on consumers by livestock products, taking into account both the health of livestock raised on feed and the environmental impact of manure from livestock raised on feed and other undesirable substances.
Although now, this Code does not address the livestock production, processing, or sale stages at this time, in the near future we anticipate to expand its scope and launch a series of initiatives to assure safety from feed to livestock products by certifying livestock products produced using feed whose safety has been verified and which livestock products has been verified by the third party certification authority.”
