What is now the fourth largest chicken processing company in the United States, started as a small feed company in 1914 in Little Rock, Ark. Mountaire Farms, family owned and operated, attributes their many years of success to their commitment to customers with quality products and exceptional service. Key to this commitment is their Safe Feed/Safe Food (SF/SF) certified status.
Alltech has been International Safe Feed/Safe Food (SF/SF) certified since 2012. The American Feed Industry Association recently spoke with Taryn Pitman, Alltech global quality manager, about why the company participates in the program.
Zinpro Corporation, a manufacturer of trace mineral nutritional solutions, has been FSC36 Safe Feed/Safe Food (SF/SF) certified since the American Feed Industry Association launched the program in 2005.

What happens on a feedlot in Nebraska can certainly impact a consumer in North Dakota, the same way that a broiler chicken’s diet can be the make-or-break difference to a shopper using a QR code to learn more about a particular product at the point of sale.
The American Feed Industry Association’s Safe Feed/Safe Food (SF/SF) program began in 2004 with Food Sector Category 36 (FSC36), a voluntary, independently certified program designed for the total feed industry. Our SF/SF certification program maintains comprehensive standards of excellence that go beyond existing regulations to maximize feed and food safety. Excelling at every aspect of feed production remains "Our Responsibility, Our Promise" to regulators, customers and American consumers.
Animal food safety is at the heart of CPC Commodities’ business. They feed their own cattle feed that is produced with the same ingredients and processes and the company prides itself on providing quality feed that was “proven on our farm--made for yours.” Participating in the American Feed Industry Association’s Safe Feed/Safe Food certification program is just one way that CPC Commodities helps ensure that their feed is safe and that the resulting foods that come from those animals, regardless of whether it is meat, milk or eggs are safe for human consumption. Below is a recent interview with CPC Commodities’ Regulatory Compliance Manager Michelle Estes on the certification program.
