Fefac s mission is to

FEFAC’s mission is to:

  • represent, defend and promote the interests of the European compound feed industry to the European Institutions;

  • lobby for a legislative framework and its implementation, without discrimination in EU Member States so as to maximise market opportunities for EU compound feed companies;

  • safeguard conditions of free access to raw materials, the proper functioning of their markets and the definition of their quality;

  • develop professional rules and good manufacturing practices that ensure the quality and the safety of compound feed;

  • encourage the sustainabledevelopment of animal productions responding to the market requirements,

Fefac role on innovation and research development

FEFAC role on innovation and Research & Development

  • Precompetitive innovation and Research & Development issues at EU level.

  • General EU framework supporting innovation and Research & development

  • Ensuring of a « level playing field » for a sustainable development for feed and livestock production.

13th International Feed Technology Symposium


Regulation ec no 767 2009 on the marketing and use of feed 1

Regulation (EC) No 767/2009 on the marketing and use of feed (1)

  • Whereas 24: « The intellectual property rights of producers should be protected. For the enforcement of such intellectual property rights, Directive 2004/48/EC should apply. It should also be acknowledged that the quantitative composition of compound feed, unlike the names of feed materials contained therein, can, under certain conditions, be considered confidential information to be protected ».

  • Whereas 31: «  Modern labelling facilitates a competitive market environment in which dynamic, efficient, innovative operators can make full use of labelling to sell their products. Having regard to both the business-to-business relationship in the marketing of livestock feed […], Codes of good labelling […] could be a useful means of achieving the objectives of modern labelling ».

13th International Feed Technology Symposium


Regulation ec no 767 2009 on the marketing and use of feed 2

Regulation (EC) No 767/2009 on the marketing and use of feed (2)

  • Article 13: « The labelling and the presentation of feed materials and compound feed may draw particular attention to the presence or the absence of a substance in the feed, to a specific nutritional characteristic or process or to a specific function related to any of these, provided that the following conditions are met:

    (a) the claim is objective, verifiable by the competent authorities and understandable by the user of the feed; and

    (b) the person responsible for the labelling provides, at the request of the competent authority, scientific substantiation of the claim, either by reference to publicly available scientific evidence or through documented company research ».

13th International Feed Technology Symposium


Regulation ec no 767 2009 on the marketing and use of feed 3

Regulation (EC) No 767/2009 on the marketing and use of feed (3)

  • Article 17(2)b: «  if the percentages by weight of the feed materials contained in compound feed for food-producing animals are not indicated on the labelling, the person responsible for the labelling shall, without prejudice to Directive 2004/48/EC, make available to the purchaser, on request, information on the quantitative composition data within a range of +/– 15 % of the value according to the feed formulation ».

The fefac environment report

The FEFAC environment report …

  • … is an investigation of different aspects of the sustainability of compound feed production and consumption from environment viewpoint

  • … is a non exhaustive review of national / European initiatives to evaluate / improve the sustainability of compound feed production and consumption

  • … is not a life cycle assessment

13th International Feed Technology Symposium


The fefac credo 1

The FEFAC Credo (1)

  • FEFAC believes that products of animal origin form an integral part of the European diet providing key nutritional benefits to the European population.

  • Nutritionally optimised feed meeting the physiological requirements of animals and fish raised for food production purposes is essential to mitigate the environmental impact of production and consumption of animal products.

  • The EU compound feed industry is willing to responsibly contribute to the sustainable development of livestock and aquaculture production systems

13th International Feed Technology Symposium


The fefac credo 2

The FEFAC Credo (2)

  • FEFAC believes that the key drivers for such improvements are:

    • Promotion of ecologically intensive production systems for farm animals and fish, oriented towards maximisation of resources efficiency and minimisation of GHG emissions;

    • Changes in diet patterns and composition for farm animals and fish to significantly reduce the GHG emissions attributed to livestock production systems (e.g. methane); 

    • Improvement of feed efficiency, i.e. the conversion of feed into animal products, in order to control the use of resources and to reduce the loss of nutrients;

    • Further optimisation of use of co-products from the food industry, biomass and non-organic raw materials to alleviate the pressure on natural resources.

13th International Feed Technology Symposium


The fefac credo 3

The FEFAC Credo (3)

  • FEFAC and its member Associations believe they have a role to play in providing feed companies with tools to measure and improve the environmental performance of their products. FEFAC is committed to play a role as spokesman of the EU compound feed industry to facilitate feed chain cross-sector initiatives to develop standardised methodologies to evaluate carbon foot print and also to contribute to international agreements on sustainable criteria for feed production.
