Animal feed means products of vegetable or animal origin, in their natural state, fresh or preserved, and products derived from the industrial processing, for animal feeding. These can be premixtures, complementary feeding stuffs with a high content of a certain substance, complete feeding stuffs, additives or just products that are meant for animal feeding.
Animal feed is an important part of the products that Primoris analyzes. Our experience with this product makes us a reliable partner; both in analyses as in support.
Legislation on feed for the European Union is described in directive 2002/32/EC. This is a different legislation than that is applicable for food for human consumption
We are very well suited to be your partner in analyzing your animal feed products in terms of mycotoxins, pesticides and other contaminants.
Primoris is certified in Belgium by Ovocom, the Belgian consultation platform for the animal feed chain.
