EDA position on the legal status of former foodstuffs for feed use

It is of major importance that the future guidelines of the COM on ‘former foodstuffs’ and their settlement in the overall picture of hygiene and animal health related laws do support an increased use of animal by-products from the food sector as feed, where use as food is no longer possible, and does not negatively impact other by-products from the dairy industry. The dairy industry would very much contribute to the COM guidelines on the legal status of ‘former foodstuffs’ as an opportunity to further streamline the diverse requirements.
