Mitavite Announce Industry First Feed Safety & Security Program
Leading horse feed manufacturer, Mitavite, has launched the Centaur Feed Assurance Program, an industry first initiative around feed safety and security. The Mitavite Centaur Feed Assurance Program is a feed testing program that has been designed to provide an additional level of security from naturally occurring prohibited substances that can enter the feed chain via weed seed contamination or even human intervention. The testing program also includes a cobalt screen. Mitavite have partnered with UK-based independent Equine Nutrition (IEN), a specialist, equine focused, state of the art analytical laboratory to provide a regular feed contamination and herb, spices & plant screening program. "As the provider of feed and nutrition programs to many leading trainers throughout Australasia, Asia and the Middle East we believe it is important that we take every step to ensure that to the best of our knowledge our feeds are safe to use and contaminant free," said Mitavite General Manager, Colin Price. "This program will add to the already extensive testing program undertaken on all our feeds and raw materials at our own laboratory. Our partners IEN are acknowledged internationally as leaders in the provision of equine feed screening services."
