EU TSE Roadmap II - European Commission draft proposal on the lifting of the feed ban for non ruminant processed animal proteins - FEFAC position


With a view to current discussions at the EU Standing Committee of the Food Chain, FEFAC’s Council members agreed on the public position of the European feed industry supporting in principle the European Commission’s intention to lift the 11 year old feed ban for non-ruminant processed animal proteins to non-ruminant farm animals on scientific and sustainability grounds. However, FEFAC Council considers that the proposed 0-tolerance for intra-species recycling would make the use of non-ruminant PAPs practically impossible in the feed chain outside aquafeed production.
