Benefits

Providing safe feed and food is essential to ensure that the risk of a food or feed ‘incident’ is minimised. A complex web of supply chains combine to achieve this and the Agricultural Industries Confederation’s (AIC) feed trade assurance schemes form a vital part of the ’assured chain’ which minimises risk.

The AIC assurance schemes are designed for:

  • Feed compounders
  • Feed ingredient suppliers
  • Fertiliser manufacturers
  • Agricultural merchants
  • Seed processors
  • Biofuel producers

However, many other businesses are eligible to participate including: hauliers, storekeepers, ports, shipping operators, and testing facilities.
