Supported by the Ghana Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA), the training programme in Ghana based on the IFIF FAO Feed Manual of Good Practices for the Feed Industry focussed on increasing safety and feed quality at the production level by training over 30 national and regional feed officials and feed mill representatives and they will act as multipliers by sharing the training with colleagues throughout Ghana.
IFIF developed this programme in 2015 and held successful programmes in Nigeria and Tanzania. The Programme is designed to raise capacities for feed safety in developing regions by training key individuals who can then apply and share their new skills with colleagues on site within a country. This reflects IFIF’s mission to promote solutions and information sharing for the feed industry, as well as stimulate the adoption of international standards and global equivalency.
The IFIF training has real impacts for participants who can apply their new feed safety skills in feed mills across Ghana. Through the IFIF training programme the feed officials and feed millers in Ghana should be better able to understand the FAO/IFIF Code of Practice for Good Animal Feeding and other Codex standards, including hazards associated with animal feed, good production practices, cross contamination, and sampling and analysis.
The International Feed Industry Federation (IFIF) is made up of national and regional feed associations, feed related organizations, and corporate members from around the globe, representing over 80% of the feed production worldwide. IFIF provides a unified voice and leadership to represent and promote the global feed industry as an essential participant in the food chain that provides sustainable, safe, nutritious and affordable food for a growing world population.
