GLOBAL - The International Feed Industry Federation (IFIF) together with the Food andAgriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) have launched the Arabic languageversion of the "Manual of Good Practices for the Feed Industry".

This Manual, the first of its kind, was published by IFIF and FAO to increase feed safety and quality at the production level.

Ms de Athayde added, "The Feed Manual is intended to guide managers of feedmills and the feed industry as a whole and we are very pleased that we have now launched the Arabic language version. We believe this will support international trade in feed products as well as in products of animal origin."
