To comply with new regulations and meet the increased consumer expectations regarding food safety and quality, the feed industry is embarking on a new era focused on prevention rather than reaction.
To help feed professionals navigate the future of food safety, Kemin recently launched a new magazine, FeedForward. FeedForward serves as a resource addressing hot topics such as the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), the impact of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration's Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), and the importance of a comprehensive Salmonella control program. The first issue is filled with timely information from recognized experts including Richard Sellers, senior vice president of the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), and Salmonella control expert Dr. Frank Jones.
"Each of us involved in the global food supply chain plays a critical role in ensuring that food produced is safer than ever before," said Kemin president and CEO Dr. Chris Nelson. "Kemin is ahead of the curve in understanding how the ever-changing regulatory landscape impacts our customers; FeedForward provides insights the industry can use to take on these new challenges with confidence."
Since earning the prestigious Global Food Safety Initiative recognition at its Des Moines, Iowa, manufacturing facility in February 2013, Kemin Industries remains a leader in the production of safe, quality ingredients. Kemin earned the FSSC 22000:2010 certification, recognized by GFSI, which is accepted by food manufacturers worldwide. Over the course of three years, Kemin invested human and financial capital to enhance existing conditions and processes, verifying its products are safe, efficient and effective until they reach the end consumer.
