Storage and transhipment of feed

To ensure full transparency and seamless quality assurance, QS also integrates service providers in the feed sector. Among other things, this ensures that feed is stored and transhipped in a hygienically flawless manner.

All requirements for storage and transhipment businesses are outlined in detail in the Guideline Feed Sector. Qualified auditors monitor compliance with the requirements regularly and independently.
