European Feed Manufacturers’ Federation
FEFAC is the European Federation of Compound Feed Manufacturers for food producing animals and represents 23 national Associations in 23 EU Member States as well as Associations in Switzerland, Turkey, Serbia, Russia and Norway with observer/associate member status. The European compound feed industry employs over 100,000 persons on app. 3,500 production sites often in rural areas, which offer few employment opportunities.
Feed manufacturers supply EU livestock farmers with nutritionally optimised mixtures of feed materials with feed additives to provide animals the essential nutrients they need to maintain a high health and welfare status. Where needed and under supervision of veterinarians, feed may be used as a pathway to administrate veterinary medicines to animals in a safe and controlled way.
