We’ve been working hard to refresh most of our website pages. Things change – we’re keeping up so you can too!

What’s Changed?

We’ve reorganized the menu and animal food safety pages to include the most relevant Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and food safety plan information like:

These pages provide important information that is helpful for developing a food safety system for regulatory compliance. Relevant factsheets are also included on these pages or can be accessed in the Publications & Factsheets menu tab.

What’s New?

Our newest pages highlight definitions of terms that come up frequently in animal food safety discussions and provide more information about CGMP, food safety plans, and PCAF exemptions.

On top of the new PCAF pages we’ve added, we decided to include specific pages that focus on Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP) and Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food.

Extension programs and training opportunities for animal food safety, feed milling and extrusion are now under the Programs & Training menu tab.

More Resources will point you in the direction of external webinars and virtual meetings hosted by trade associations, industry or other academic institutions that might be of interest to feed, pet food and ingredient processors in North Carolina.
