The rearing of healthy European livestock is highly dependent on the provision of high quality and safe feeds for these animals. This in turn has a major impact on the safety of the entire animal based food chain. The concept of QSAFFE is to deliver better, faster and more economically viable means of ensuring the quality and safety of animal feeds in Europe.

The Ultimate Goal

To provide Europe with a framework for improving the quality and safety of animal feeds entering at ports from outside the EU as well as products produced within Europe.

Who's Involved

The QSAFFE consortium is composed of academics and government scientists with substantial experience in animal feed quality and safety research along with industrial companies who are dedicated to supplying and producing safer and higher quality animal feed products.

Together, our vision is an integrated approach to the reduction and management of chemical and microbiological contamination in animal feeds in Europe.

The concept of this project is to provide better ways of preventing contamination, preventing fraud, identifying and assessing new risks and providing scientific evidence of the risks of transfer of microbiological and chemical contaminants from feed to food.
