Unique double for UM Feeds

| Filed in:
UM Feeds Marketing, Tate & Lyle’s UK-based co-product feeds business, has announced its success in gaining accreditation to both the ISO 9002 and the UFAS quality assurance standards.

UMFM is the first company in the co-products sector of the feed industry to gain this unique double. Achievement of both accreditations is particularly significant since it combines the rigorous customer-service disciplines of ISO 9002 with the stringent product quality requirements of UFAS.

George Fairweather of EFSIS Certification Ltd., who are the Inspection and Certification body for the UFAS-Animal Feed Materials, commented, "It is very pleasing to see UM Feeds Marketing attain certification under UFAS-AFM, which covers a wide range of feed materials from the human feed industry. UMFM are now able to supply these wholesome, natural products under standards equivalent to those applied to manufactured feeds.”

Robin Stevens, who manages the business commented, “We aim to offer the highest possible standards of service to both the livestock farming sector and the human food industry. Using our marketing, quality assurance and customer-service resources, we seek to offer the high levels of transparency, traceability and quality which all elements of the food chain now demand.”
