FEFANA launches new classification tool for mixtures

Tool aims to promote consistent approach with regard to identification of single feed ingredient as either feed additive or feed material.

FEFANA, the association of specialty feed ingredients and their mixtures in the European Union, announced that the website www.fefana.org has been completely revamped to improve the experience and navigation as well as hosting two updated classification tools available to guide feed business operators and authorities.

The new FEFANA website has been redesigned to be more user friendly, allowing visitors to browse easily for information they are looking for. It highlights the main topics of the specialty feed ingredient industry FEFANA represents, including, in particular, a user-friendly guide to specialty feed ingredients and FEFANA tools.

The FEFANA Substances Classification Tool was launched in 2007 and has been updated constantly since then. It aims to promote a consistent approach with regard to the identification of a single feed ingredient as either feed additive or feed material.

FEFANA president Gerritjan van der Ven pointed out that the online Mixture Classification Tool "supports the user in the classification of mixtures. Based on the characteristics of the feed mixture, it distinguishes between feed additive preparation, premixture or compound feed. The FEFANA classification tools assist feed business operators to ensure legal compliance and shall also support a harmonized approach of control authorities.”

FEFANA is the united voice of the specialty feed ingredients business in Europe. Its membership comprises manufacturers and traders of feed additives, functional feed ingredients, premixes and other mixtures of specialty ingredients that enter the food chain via feed. FEFANA facilitates the dialogue between EU institutions and feed business operators while promoting feed and food safety and a fair and competitive market.
