License to sell

What started in 1992 as a set of guidelines for the Dutch feed sector has grown into a full-fledged certification scheme. The scheme is recognized and respected worldwide, partly through the integration of ISO quality management requirements and HACCP. GMP+ FSA is therefore considered a ‘license to sell’ in more and more countries. More than 18,000 companies in more than eighty countries are now GMP + FSA certified.
