GLOBALG.A.P. Launches Sustainability Module for Feed Mills

The Responsible Operations Standard (ROS), A New Add-on for GLOBALG.A.P.'s Compound Feed Manufacturing Standard, Puts Feed Mills at the Forefront of Sustainability.
 GLOBALG.A.P. is proud to announce the publishing of a new voluntary GLOBALG.A.P. Add-on. The Responsible Operations Standard (ROS) Add-on for Compound Feed Manufacturing V1 aims to improve the sustainability practices of feed mills wishing to produce sustainable compound feed for aquaculture and livestock. This is achieved by:
    •    Reducing energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
    •    Reducing water use
    •    Strategies to avoid waste and effluents
    •    Responsible sourcing of agricultural and marine feed materials from sustainable production
    •    Product declarations on feed efficiency, environmental impacts, and genetically modified                    organisms (GMO) content
    •    Mass balances for specific claims on sustainability attributes of feed materials
    •    Promoting social engagement with the local community

The module was developed based on industry demands and with the strong commitment and support of the Norwegian aquaculture compound feed industry. It consists of seven sections with a total of 57 Control Points and Compliance Criteria.
It is available as a third party certification. Feed mills with a current GLOBALG.A.P. Compound Feed Manufacturing (CFM) Certificate or any GLOBALG.A.P. equivalent certificate for compound feed may apply for the assessment.

GLOBALG.A.P. is a leading global certification program whose mission is to bring farmers and retailers together to produce and market safe food to protect scarce resources and build a sustainable future. Visit www.globalgap.org for more information.
