Fish Food

FSMA Compliant

Our new state-of-the-art Feed Mill in Dale, IN was built in order to consolidate our three existing feed mill locations into one. The decision to close the existing operations was driven by the requirements to become compliant with the Federal Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The new regulations concern the handling of nutrition for animals being held to the same quality and standards as human consumption. With the ages of our existing facilities, the cost to upgrade and meet the standards far exceeded that of the construction of a new facility.

FSMA is designed to prevent foodborne illnesses by following Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) for animal food production. These practices cover all aspects of the mill operation, including a written food safety plan. This plan must include a hazard analysis and preventive controls, including process and sanitation controls, as well as corrective actions, verification and a recall plan.
  
Superior Ag’s Dale Feed Mill is among the first in Indiana to be certified FSMA compliant. To learn more about the Food Safety Modernization Act, click here to visit the FSMA website:
