AFIA Looking for Feed Facility of the Year

Applications open June 1


The American Feed Industry Association will begin accepting applications for the 2018 Feed Facility of the Year (FFY) program tomorrow.

The FFY program is designed to be a world-class benchmarking program for the animal food industry. It recognizes overall excellence in feed manufacturing operations, emphasizing safety, quality, regulatory compliance, employee development and overall operating efficiencies.

The Feed Facility of the Year program provides participating facilities with invaluable benchmarking information to show how they stack up against their peers. In addition, it recognizes those outstanding facilities that are leading the way in feed manufacturing practices, which promotes best practices and lessons learned across the industry. Non-members are ineligible for the awards portion of the program, but they receive all the benefits of the benchmarking program.

To keep benchmarking information relative, four industry categories, with category-specific applications, are considered: commercial dry livestock feed, integrator, liquid feed and premix manufacturing. Winners will be selected in each category and among those, an overall FFY winner.

The winners will be recognized at the 2019 International Production & Processing Expo, being held Feb. 12-14, in Atlanta, GA.

Applications are due by Sept. 7, along with an application fee of $100 for AFIA members and $250 for non-members.

For more information, contact Gary Huddleston, AFIA's director of feed manufacturing and regulatory affairs, at (703) 666-8854.
