Workshop offers insights on animal feed best practices

19 February 2020

The Food Safety Project has organized a workshop on animal feed, bringing together more than 30 food/feed safety and agriculture officials from across Albania.

Led by Dr. Liam Hyde, one of Ireland’s leading experts on the subject, the workshop offered insights into feed practices in Ireland and EU regulations as well as provided a space to ask questions and discuss the topic.

Officials from Albania’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the National Food Authority (AKU) and the Institute of Food Safety and Veterinary Affairs (ISUV) attended the workshop to learn more about how to safeguard human and animals health by following proper feed practices as well as how to bring Albania’s practices in line with those of the European Union.

The EU-funded Food Safety Project (“Support to food safety, veterinary and phytosanitary standards”) is implemented by a consortium led by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI). The implementing group also includes the Finnish Food Authority, the Irish Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and Creative Business Solutions (CBS) in Albania.
