FAMI-QS: ECSA is a certified company for specialty feeds

The numerous certifications obtained by ECSA over the years are proof of the company’s efforts and interest in numerous fields, ranging from product and process quality to managing supply procedures and delivering supplies. ECSA Chemicals has a team dedicated entirely to the activities related to national and international laws; in January 2020, it started working to achieve FAMI-QS certification.

FAMI-QS is a certificate focused on specialty feeds and on the mixture of ingredients they contain. It is the European code of good practices for companies active in the sector of additives and pre-mixtures for specialty feeds. Its aim is the management of the various processing phases while ensuring full hygiene and safety. The standard can be applied to all the links in the chain (including separately), e.g. transport, laboratories for the analyses of these products, and can be extended to sellers such as ECSA. Obtaining this certification confirms that the entire supply chain, from “field to plate” is safe and certified.

FAMI-QS is a recently introduced standard that is not widespread yet, so it gives a competitive advantage to certified companies, especially in international markets.

“In recent years, there has been growing interest in this type of certification,” says Enrico Barni, Quality Manager. “Having FAMI-QS certification opens new markets to ECSA and also offers greater peace of mind and safety to our customers, who will no longer have to organise audits themselves - they will immediately have the guarantee that every product meets safety standards in every link of the supply chain.”

On that regard, the ECSA CEO Matteo Centonze and the staff are committed to:

  • Establishing the quality and safety policy of specialty feeds, the aims of the Quality System and of the safety of specialty feeds and that all the above are compatible with ECSA’s strategic management and context;
  • Providing the resources required by the system for the management of the quality and safety of specialty feeds;
  • Ensuring the specialty feeds safety and quality management system achieves the established results;
  • Ensuring the specialty feeds quality and safety policy and the aims are direct and specific for support staff, to contribute to the efficacy of the specialty feeds quality and safety management system;
  • Promoting continuous improvement through the specialty feeds quality and safety policy and objectives;
  • Ensuring that the specialty feeds quality and safety policy and the identification of the aims for the other relevant management roles can appropriately demonstrate the leadership of every role according to how the above is applied in the specific areas they are responsible for;
  • The specialty feeds quality and safety policy is communicated to, understood and applied by all internal and external parties involved in the work;
  • Ensuring compliance with the relevant laws, the assessment of HACCP risks, the assessment of vulnerability to feed fraud and of terrorism threats;
  • Guaranteeing to stake holders (general public, the state, suppliers, customers, shareholders) that the specialty feeds quality and safety requirements are met.
