Smaller feed
companies
struggle to
comply with
FSMA
While large manufacturers took
act in stride, small mills still
struggle with FSMA compliance.
EMMA PENROD

W

hen President Barack Obama signed the
Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)
into law in 2011, the act was both praised
and criticized as the single most sweeping reform ever
attempted in U.S. agriculture.
Rhetoric in the feed industry was no exception,
with the rumor mill churning out abundant talk of
catastrophic costs and facility closures. But today,
nearly a year into the full implementation of FSMA's
hazard prevention rules, the furor about compliance
has died down for the most part.
While some of the industry's largest players have
taken the act in stride - discovering, some say, that
they were happily in compliance with FSMA all
along - reports of mill closures continue to abound
among smaller feed mills, which may lack the
resources to conform to the rule's new requirements
despite extended deadlines and delayed inspections.
"Multinational corporations have dealt with food safety
for years and years," says David Fairfield, senior vice president for feed at the National Feed and Grain Association
(NGFA). "But the animal feed industry is much more

diverse and, in many cases, operations aren't nearly as
sophisticated. They didn't have food safety people on staff,
so FSMA came with a big learning curve."

Smooth transition to FSMA compliance for
large corporations
No one would say FSMA was easy to comply with,
says Paul Davis, director of animal food safety and
education for the American Feed Industry Association
(AFIA). But on the whole, he says, the industry was
well prepared to adapt.
"Our industry was already producing very safe
animal food, so it was not such a momentous task," he
says, chalking up the "initial shock of the rule" to a
general dislike of change and new regulations. "I don't
think anyone would say it's easy because you're dealing
with safety and very difficult things. You don't joke
around about safety, but probably, early on, the reaction
was perhaps more negative than it needed to be."
Once the initial shock of FSMA passed, Davis says,
industry leaders "started to dig in and ask questions."
