Feed safety is one of the vital challenges faced by the global feed and food system. Hardly a day passes without news about feed that has been contaminated with harmful bacteria, mycotoxins, drug residues or other hazards. Feed safety issues can also have a catastrophic effect on a business, as was demonstrated with the recent African swine fever crisis.
The prevention of such incidents is vital, especially with the growing demand for meat. Additionally, younger generations are much more vocal about these issues, exerting increasing pressure on producers. All of this means that feed safety issues will become even more pressing as time goes on.
