The European Feed Manufacturers' Federation (FEFAC) was founded in 1959 by five national compound feed associations. Now it represents, as full members, 28 national associations in 27 European countries as well as associations in Switzerland, Turkey, Norway, Serbia and Russia with observer/associate member status.
There is an ever increasing focus on the environmental impact of feed and AIC provides support for members on the environmental policies affecting feed mills and feeding advice, as well as updates on sustainability issues.
AIC Services Palm Oil Credit Scheme (APOCS) has been launched in conjunction with the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) to purchase palm oil credits on behalf of AIC members and support sustainable supply chains.
In March 2021, AIC met a panel of MPs who were leading on the Prime Minister’s Task Force on Innovation, Growth and Regulatory Reform (TIGRR). AIC presented on the subject of innovation in the animal feed sector, citing gene editing possibilities and regulatory easements in food waste and feed supplement products.
