UK - In July 2004 Park Tonks Ltd received accreditation to the FEMAS standard - the UKAS feed material assurance scheme.

FEMAS is part of an ongoing strategy to build and maintain confidence in UK livestock production through the use of safe animal feed. It is designed to cover the production and supply of all feed materials and ensure the supply of safe feed materials to farms and feed manufacturers. This not only benefits the well being of the livestock but also the health and safety of the ultimate consumer.

FEMAS is based on HACCP principles and good operational practise and suppliers of feed materials identify the hazards that may be associated with their products.

Achieving this standard required significant time and commitment from the quality team. Helen James the quality coordinator said "although this process has meant a lot of hard work from all concerned it has improved our working practises and has strengthened us as a company"

We feel that this accreditation will not only benefit the company but also our customers as it will increase their confidence in the quality and safety of our products.
