In order to make sure our post-industrial food by-product to animal feed subsidiary, Quincy Farm Products, and their partners stay fully compliant with FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) regulations, QFP’s senior management team have all been FSPCA Preventative Controls for Animal Food certified.
Not only does this protect the business, just as importantly it protects QFP’s suppliers and customers.
For example, the “1 forward and 1 back” requirement which requires covered businesses to understand where product coming into their facilities has been and where it’s going can be difficult to correctly implement.
That’s where FSPCA certification comes in. By having a deep understanding and competence related to FSMA, our team provides world-class advice and processes to our suppliers and customers.
The Food Safety Preventative Controls Alliance (FSPCA) is “a broad-based public private alliance consisting of key industry, academic and government stakeholders whose mission is to support safe food production by developing a nationwide core curriculum, training and outreach programs to assist companies producing human and animal food in complying with the preventive controls regulations that will be part of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).”
In addition to three certifications in Preventative Controls for animal food, the QFP team have a certification in FSPCA’s Preventative Control for Human Food as well. This provides QFP a deeper understanding of the needs of many of our suppliers, who manufacture or process human food.
