Code of good practice for the labelling of compound feed for food producing animals

This Code of Practice developed jointly by Copa-Cogeca and FEFAC in accordance with article 25 of Regulation (EC) No 767/2009 was endorsed by the EU Commission in accordance with article 26 of the same Regulation, i.e. after consultation of stakeholders and national control authorities. It provides producers of compound feed with practical recommendations on how to label compound feed in accordance with the provisions laid down in Regulation (EC) No 767/2009 on the placing on the market and use of feed. It also enables farmers to better understand labeling particulars and better assess the nutrition value of a compound feed thus contributing to informed choice. It includes in particular a section on claims (permitted claims, justification of claims). This Code will be updated regularly.
