In many areas, certification leads to the implementation and development of quality standards, verifying and documenting them for the outside world. Especially with regard to animal feed, external auditing by relevent independent certification bodies has become standard procedure to guarantee quality products and services.



The production of "responsible" food includes the provision of safe feed. In addition to the Feed Hygiene Ordinance, certification according to GMP+ is an instrument specially designed to meet the requirements for production, storage and trade. This includes protection against contamination and the safe, rapid traceability of products. Since ISO-9001, HACCP, limits for feed safety and basic conditions have now been integrated, among other things, GMP+ FSA represents a comprehensive approach and certification is and will become a standard in more and more countries.

jbs joined this system in 2006 and is subject to annual auditing by an independent approved certification body.

To meet the demand for non-GM feed, GMP+ has implemented the GMP+ MI105 standard and VLOG recognises it. It is required that the entire production chain, and thus also feed used, is labelled as non-GM. A certification according to "GMO-controlled" entitles jbs to supply livestock farmers with feed that produce food without genetic engineering.


VLOG verified

The VLOG seal is awarded by the association "ohne Gentechnik". Feed manufacturers who refrain from using genetically modified organisms are certified. If the audit is successful, the products may bear the VLOG seal.

In the QS system, not only feed businesses but food businesses as well may obtain a certification – which is meant to ensure that the whole chain from livestock to table meets quality criteria. The audit takes place every two years. QS and GMP+ have mutually acknowledged each other, provided that the companies participating in the QS system carry out an annual audit; and that companies participating in GMP+ register in the QS database.

Dealerships like jbs which offer their goods exclusively in bags respectively as packaged goods, are excluded from their certification obligations under QS. Nevertheless, we have applied for the registration in order to ensure that you and your auditor will be able to find us in the QS database as a dealership certified under GMP+.
