Who is IFIF
The International Feed Industry Federation represents the global feed industry as an essential participant in the food chain that provides sustainable, safe and nutritious food. Overall, IFIF members represent over 80% of the feed production worldwide.
IFIF is made up of national and regional feed associations, feed related organizations, and corporate members from around the globe. IFIF provides a unified leadership and coordinating role to promote the global feed industry in order to contribute to the sustainable supply of safe, healthy feed and therefore food. Given the anticipated growth of the world’s population to around 9 billion people by 2050, and the associated higher demand for animal proteins like beef, poultry and fish, it is vital that we can meet this challenge in a sustainable and safe way.
IFIF helps to ensure high standards of health and welfare for animals and people, for example by collaborating with with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), CODEX Alimentarius as a CODEX recognised NGO, and other international bodies, including the WTO, WHO, and the OIE to help set stringent international regulatory standards for the whole feed chain.
In addition IFIF works with its Members to promote a range of safe processing technologies in feed manufacture and sponsoring university research in animal nutrition and other fields and conducting feeding and animal husbandry trials. IFIF also aims to play a proactive role in educating feed manufacturers, consumers and regulatory authorities worldwide on a variety of issues that affect the supply of safe and affordable animal proteins such as beef, poultry, fish and dairy products.
