Animals can now dine on the finest as premixed feed reaches human-grade standards for the first time in the UK. The goal was achieved after a rigorous paper-based accreditation process, along with an in-person audit, which saw Premier Nutrition become the first UK company of its kind to be awarded a Food Safety Certificate (FSSC 22000).
Premier Nutrition is an animal nutrition specialist organisation that engineers animal feed driven by science and nutrition, to meet and exceed their customers’ needs in both the agricultural and pet food supply sectors.
By receiving the Food Safety Certification, Premier Nutrition continues to raise awareness that there is both a need and demand for proper nutrition for animals.
As quoted in the PET GAZETTE, Jane Ratcliffe, Technical Services Manager at Premier Nutrition, states: “We foresee that retailers may request this high level of transparency as far back as feed raw materials. This is why we’ve taken steps to ensure our whole supply chain is future-ready by meeting human grade food standards now.”
