Safe food is based on safe production of livestock/aquaculture. Therefore, there are also requirements for the feed that the animals receive. Schemes within feed production contain requirements that feed producers can document production conditions and traceability.

The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration carries out inspections of feed companies, cf. the Feed Control Executive Order. It is stated that the agency can carry out fewer visits if the company has a quality system that is certified by an accredited certification body.

DANAK accredits for certification to a number of feed schemes as well as for management systems in the area.
