Most feed companies now rely on quality and trust in their products from both customers and investors. And many of them are gradually choosing the path to certification of their enterprise. In foreign countries, this is already a common practice of applying measures and tools to support the development of the production of feed and feed additives for farm animals.
A farm animal business is highly dependent on feed and feed additives for its effectiveness. Indeed, the quality of feeding directly depends on whether the body of livestock will be saturated with nutrients. And one of the existing mechanisms for the development of agricultural producers is the state and investors. From this, it became necessary to carry out a number of relevant measures for the full creation of favorable conditions for the development of the technological base of feed and premixes. And it is precisely the certification of the enterprise that helps to realize this. Certification creates and conducts this complex of measures, giving an answer to the account of quality and trust in the product and the manufacturer, which accompanies the development of all chains of agricultural business as a whole.
Certification is the building of a quality management system (QMS) and the subsequent receipt of a certificate of compliance with all standards of the series. Certification is a rather lengthy and laborious process, but more and more enterprises are making a strategic decision in favor of certification. Certification is a guarantor of quality and trust, because its presence indicates that all production mechanisms comply with general rules, norms and standards of international quality.
The implementation of the QMS makes it possible to fully improve such aspects of business reputation as image and significance. And also the QMS itself is an integral part of business reputation and directly affects the increase in the market value of the enterprise, which accompanies its development as a whole. QMS is a very effective way to systematize the activities of an enterprise through documentation, control, analysis and periodic revision of key production and management processes in accordance with international standards, ensures transparency, better manageability and continuous improvement of the enterprise. Any enterprise will not be able to survive in global competition if it does not try to meet the standards established by industry leaders, today many large enterprises have already made their choice towards certification.
Of the first opportunities that certification provides, it can be noted the possibility of entering international markets and attracting foreign investors and clients. As mentioned earlier, this, in turn, significantly raises the value and importance of the enterprise in the market. And when demand increases, new opportunities for improvement open up, as well as paths for new development. Also, after certification, the enterprise takes part in the global feed safety system, gains access to supporting information (fact sheets, risk assessments, newsletters, early warning systems, etc.), provides itself with business continuity as a result of a more efficient company structure and reducing financial risks and costs. From this, a simple conclusion can be drawn in one laborious and lengthy, but necessary step.
There are a number of standards for which certification is carried out, it depends on what types of activities the standard applies to. Therefore, first you need to make the choice of the appropriate standard for the enterprise. You can read more about standards in this article “Certification standards and their types” or contact
