AFIA announced the ‘Feed Facility of the Year’ for 2018. Famo Feeds is first family-owned feed company to win the honor. To date, only 33 facilities have received this industry award.
The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) congratulated Famo Feeds, an animal nutrition business that manufactures and markets a full-line of livestock and poultry feeds, for being named the 2018 Feed Facility of the Year (FFY). Gary Huddleston, AFIA’s director of feed manufacturing and regulatory affairs, announced that the family-owned feed company won the award during AFIA’s Feed Production Education Program, held at the International Production & Processing Expo, happening this week in Atlanta.
AFIA has conducted the FFY program since 1985, and is recognized as a first-class benchmarking program for the animal food industry, awarding top-performing facilities in four categories: commercial dry livestock, integrator, liquid feed and premix. From those, the FFY award is selected. Famo Feeds wins the 2018 FFY and the commercial dry livestock feed category.
AFIA recognized the category winners earlier in February and honored them with plaques at the Feed Production Education program. The FFY award recognizes overall excellence in feed manufacturing operations, from the company’s commitment to safety, quality and regulatory compliance to employee development to overall operating efficiencies. To date, only 33 facilities have received this industry award.
