In 1992, after several serious incidents caused by contaminated feed materials, the Dutch feed industry decided to establish a certification scheme for feed safety: GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices). This was the start of our journey in making a real difference to feed and food safety worldwide.

The largest scheme

GMP+ are proud of what they have built over the last 25 years. Without the devotion and input of numerous companies, colleagues and partners all over the world, the GMP+ Feed Certification scheme would never have developed into what it is today - a fully-fledged and widely respected scheme that covers almost the entire feed chain.

GMP+ are active in over 87 countries, work with 32 accepted Certification Bodies and have 32 partners (not to mention multiple partnerships) worldwide. In recent years, they have enjoyed year-on-year growth of 10 percent. In 2020, they even welcomed the 18,000th GMP+ certified company!

A unique approach

GMP+'s leading schemes contain clear standards and requirements to guarantee safe feed (FSA) and responsible work methods (FRA) throughout the chain. They do not just take into account production facilities, but also storage, transport, personnel and procedures. This chain approach makes the GMP+ certification scheme unique in its field. With the integration of ISO standards, HACCP and other elements, the GMP+ Feed Certification scheme guarantees not only safety, but also reliability, quality and sustainability.
