Germany and Austria: Quality standard deal
The German and Austrian quality standard systems will
acknowledge each other's programmes from now on.
This means that mix feed producers, meeting the
requirements of the Agramarkt Austra Marketing's Pastus+ will also be able to
enter the German market without having to go through extra audits by Germany's
system QS (Quality and Security).
The other way round, those mix feed
companies meeting an annual QS audit in Germany, will automatically meet the
Austrian feed quality standard Pastus+.
The agreement, made at the CIES
International Food Safety Conference in Munich, Germany, is a step in the
direction of one unified European quality standard system. Moreover, it helps to
reduce additional costs for the mix feed producers.
organisations have already been working in the European Meat Alliance (EMA), in
which several European quality standards and retail companies are working
together to guarantee the quality of products sold
