EU produces guidelines for the feed use of food no longer intended for human consumption

27 April 2018

The UK Former Foodstuffs Processing Association (UKFFPA) has welcomed the European Commission’s publication of ‘Guidelines for the feed use of food no longer intended for human consumption’. 

Paul Featherstone, who chairs both the UKFFPA and the European Former Foodstuffs Association (EFFPA), which represents processors across Europe, said: “This is a key milestone, providing both recognition for the industry and clarification. As the latest step in developing the Circular Economy Action Plan in Europe, it endorses the value of our sector within the food supply chain.

“The Guidelines look at implementing legislation across a range of scenarios. The contribution that foodstuffs that are no longer fit for human consumption can make to animal feed, and ultimately the human food supply chain, is recognised. The guidelines provide a platform for increased harmonisation of the industry across Europe and establish the valuable contribution made by the industry.”

The full guidelines can be viewed at:
