Balchem Animal Nutrition and Health has gained FAMI-QS certification for its North American plants, putting them on par with the company's already-certified European manufacturing facility.
The FAMI-QS program is designed to help streamline U.S. exports with European feed and ingredient customers. "The FAMI-QS certification is an important part of our continued commitment to our customers in the [European Union]," said Vice President and General Manager Dana Putnam. "By acquiring the FAMI-QS certificate for our North American facilities we can ensure our customers that all of our products are meeting the highest standard of regulatory feed requirements set forth by the 183/2005 regulations of the European Commission."
Prior to achieving this status, the Balchem plants held FEMAS certification.
