Chers membres, chers visiteurs, 

Le 24 septembre, nous avons officiellement présenté notre nouvelle charte de durabilité, qui comprend 12 objectifs concrets pour les dix prochaines années concernant, entre autres, les émissions de méthane, la production de soja, l'utilisation d'antibiotiques et de sous-produits.

Nous l'avons fait dans le cadre du XXIXème Congrès de la FEFAC, que BFA a coordonné cette année, et dans le cadre de la Charte de Durabilité 2020-2030 de la FEFAC.  BFA, qui a toujours été l'un des leaders européens dans le domaine de la durabilité, est l'un des premiers membres de la FEFAC à formuler une vision et des objectifs concrets.

Belgian Feed Association

The Belgian Feed Association, formerly known as BEMEFA, has the mission to represent the interests of its members and to strive for the general social acceptance of sustainable animal feed production. Today, 160 manufacturers who are producing  98% of the national production (7 million tons), are affiliated. The Belgian feed sector is part of the food chain: feed for food. This results in representations on regional, national and international level.

The use of raw materials in the feed sector, is focused on by-products of the food and the biofuel industry. More than 2 million tons of oilcakes, milling by-products, sugarbeetpellets, citruspellets, etc are valorised each year. This is part of BFA’s sustainability policy.

The feed safety concerns are prioritised in a way that a vertically integrated autocontrol system, validated by the National Food Safety Agency and certified by independent third parties called FCA (Feed Chain Alliance), offers plenty of guarantees on a safe feed. All actors in the feed chain, from raw material producer through trade and transport until processing, are part of this certification system. The Belgian feed sector has put a very robust feed safety system in place, one to be proud of.
