Double S Liquid Feed Services is excited to announce it has been certified by the Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program. Administered by the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), the Safe Feed/Safe Food program means a facility demonstrates and confirms continuous improvements in delivering safe, wholesome livestock feed for the growth and care of animals.

“Double S has a long tradition of providing top quality products,” says Greg Shepard, president of Double S Liquid Feed Services. “After a comprehensive review of our manufacturing processes, AFIA confirmed our tradition and certified Double S Liquid Feed Services as Safe Feed/Safe Food compliant. As we participate in this one-of-a-kind, voluntary program, we want our customers to know we are committed to exceeding expectations and going above and beyond FDA guidelines to achieve the highest standards for feed and food safety.”

AFIA’s Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program is open to livestock feed and pet food manufacturers, ingredient suppliers, integrated producers, meat processors, feed purchasers, livestock producers, renderers and others who want to validate a commitment to food safety through pro-active leadership. It signifies that qualifying companies have embraced the feed industry’s role in creating feed-based safety programs; they are doing their part to reduce food safety risks; they are participating in an approved risk-management program; and they are aggressively practicing risk reduction.

“Double S Liquid Feed Services should be commended for showing leadership in this important program,” says Joel G. Newman, AFIA president and chief executive officer. “They have gone the extra mile to demonstrate a strong commitment to food safety and offer reasons to their customers and consumers for increased confidence in the products they provide.”
