Quality and Safety
Quality and Safety is Ensured by The Rendering Code of Practice
North American renderers process at optimum temperatures over a prescribed length of time and they use strict quality control procedures such as ISO 9000, good manufacturing practices (GMPs) and the principles of hazard analysis critical control points (HACCP) to produce protein meals and fats that are safe and reliable feed ingredients for animals.
The industry has used these principles and other established programs in an aggressive approach to quality assurance by developing a Rendering Code of Practice. Participating facilities receive accreditation upon passing an audit conducted by the Facility Certification Institute, a third-party auditing firm. Well over 100 plants have been certified.
