Our services and quality systems


Feed is an important link in the animal production chain: they have a direct influence on the quality and safety of food of animal origin. Consumers of meat, dairy and eggs expect safe and high-quality products. An EFISC-GTP certificate shows your customers that you take food safety seriously.

EFISC-GTP stands for European Feed and Food Ingredient Safety Certification. With an EFISC-GTP certificate you can collect, transport, store, trade and produce safe food and feed ingredients. EFISC-GTP offers feed safety certification for a number of industries, including the production of vegetable oils and protein-rich products, starch and by-products from biodiesel production.

The added value of EFISC-GTP certification for your company
EFISC-GTP offers a chain approach to guarantee the safety and quality of the feed production chain. By complying with the EFISC-GTP standards, your company also complies with animal feed legislation and you apply HACCP principles.

EFISC-GTP with Schouten Advies
Schouten Advies helps you to translate abstract legislation into practical tools with which you can guarantee the feed safety of your food and feed ingredients. In addition, we focus on you and your colleagues. We help you to become aware of the influence and risks of your work on food safety.

Schouten Advies helps companies achieve their certification. Our consultants work with you to find out what your company needs. Sometimes we adapt your existing quality system, in other cases we implement a completely new system tailored to your company.

Once your quality system has been set up, we will help you maintain it. In addition, you can always call on our consultants for expert advice in the field of legislation and regulations (such as labelling), recognitions and registrations, conducting internal audits, setting up a HACCP plan, elaborating specifications or for example for performing supplier audits.

EFISC-GTP training courses, courses and secondment
Our consultants are regularly detached to animal feed companies to support and shape their quality policy. For example, we can help with the internal training of staff or we can help if you are short of hands. Contact Schouten Advies to discuss the options for posting.

We also provide training on animal feed to keep your knowledge up to date. We also offer training on food, sustainability and occupational safety. We provide both in-company training courses and courses at our own location in Giessen. Click here for more information about our training courses.
