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.

Proficiency tests, independent controls of a laboratory’s analysis quality, are part of Primoris’ everyday operation. The past months Primoris participated in the following proficiency tests:
- FAPAS: pesticides in honey
- Proof-ACS: pesticides in baby food
- FAPAS: pesticides in in basmati rice
- EURL-FV: pesticides in egg plant
Research and development are an important part of the Primoris activities.
To support these developments, we always consider evolutions in market demands and legislation. Maximal risk coverage is becoming increasingly important within pesticide residue analysis, which can be contributed to the increased focus on food safety. Furthermore, we have noticed a growing market demand for lower reporting limits.
On Monday 1 March, we activate a substantial expansion of our LC/MS-MS multiresidue methods. Thanks to this expansion, we assure maximum safety regarding the current legislations and directions in terms of food safety and we offer you analytical methods that are in line with the actual needs of the market and that are relevant for your products.
Since Monday 26 October, Primoris can support you with accredited analyses to quantify ethylene oxide in food and feed. Samples that are registered as from Tuesday 10 November for ethylene oxide analysis will be reported with a reporting limit of 0,01 mg/kg.
