The animal feed industry has become more and more technology intensive in order to produce feeds meeting the demands from farmers for their food-producing animals and from the pet owners for their companion animals. Advanced methods based on DNA analysis are now used to control the raw materials, the manufacturing processes and the quality of the finished products. Furthermore new regulations and guidelines have been introduced to ensure that feeds are of the highest possible quality and are safe for the consumers. The controls carried out alongside the whole production process encompass the detection of potential contaminants (pathogens, OGM, pig in the frame of Halal certification, ...) and the authentication of the raw material such as Meat and bone meal (MBM).
