Transparency & Food Safety

Complete traceability is fundamental to food safety. BioMar procedures and registrations contribute to full traceability both forwards and backwards in the food production chain. All feed ingredients can be traced back through BioMar's production and warehouses to the supplier of each individual raw material. Similarly, any raw material or finished feed can be traced to the individual farmer who has received the feed from BioMar.
