ECI Feed Mill Audit Results 2017

Mid January of this year the ECI Feed Division had the first re-certification audit of the feed mill.

Again this year auditors inspected our mill and milling processes using the FSC 34 level 2 Certified HACCP Based Food Safety Plan by the Safe Quality Feed Institute. After a thorough audit process spanning nearly two full days the examiner returned his report and recommendations to SQFI.

February 13th we received the results of the 2017 audit and are extremely pleased to announce that this year our mill scored 97% compliant, again placing our audit in the excellent category. Corrective action reports were filed and approved for the minor non-compliance issues the audit exposed.  

Congratulations to the ECI Feed Team for achieving and maintaining this high standard of food safety.
