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.
