The American and European feed industries, represented by the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and the European Feed Manufacturers’ Federation (FEFAC), announced a renewal of their long-term alliance yesterday [June 6].

The partnership is aimed at increasing mutual cooperation on sustainable feed production, feed safety management, communication, trade and precompetitive research.

They said a memorandum of understanding (MOU), signed during FEFAC’s 60th anniversary event in Brussels, should generate significant synergies for the respective member associations and feed companies, offering global joint project and partnership opportunities.

“AFIA and FEFAC members recognize the value of providing joint leadership at a global level, in partnership with the International Feed Industry Federation (IFIF), to develop feed industry solutions that help reduce the environmental impacts of feed and livestock production, while promoting the highest level of feed safety management and biosecurity.

“The associations agreed to explore further information sharing, linked to precompetitive research supporting joint projects, while maximizing feed trade opportunities.”
