The EU Association of Specialty Feed Ingredients and Their Mixtures, FEFANA, has created an interactive virtual library space on its website that showcases the association's publications.

FEFANA particularly foresees the release of a series of specific booklets related to different categories of products, said the association. The "Booklet on Premixtures" is the first of these intended publications.

The premixture sector has greatly developed over the last decades and is regarded as a key partner for the compound feed industry, farmers and other feed business operators. The FEFANA Working Group on Premixtures has designed and developed the "Booklet on Premixtures" to draw an overall picture of the European premixture industry. A description of the various types of premixtures is given first, followed by sourcing and procurement process of premixture ingredients, their formulation, manufacturing, packaging and transport. The final focus is on the quality management and safety of premixtures.
