The world’s largest scheme for safe and sustainable feed

We are GMP+ International

GMP+ International is the world’s largest scheme for safe and sustainable animal feed. Our mission is to enable every company in the feed chain to take responsibility for working in a safe and sustainable way.

After contaminated feed caused several serious incidents, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) was set up by the Dutch feed industry in 1992 as a certification scheme for feed safety. Today, GMP+ International is a not-for-profit with over 19,000 GMP+ certified companies in 90 countries.

Our chain approach

The strength of our scheme lies in our unique chain approach. Safe and sustainable feed can only be achieved when companies work together as a coherence within the feed chain. That's why all companies from collection to production can be GMP+ certified. Because a chain is as strong as its weakest link.

Benefits of GMP+ Certification

Unique chain approach

GMP+ certified companies do business with companies which are likewise certified. Because all companies work according to the same standards, we create a uniform chain from collection to production.  


The GMP+ FC scheme has integrated HACCP and is based on ISO 22000 standards.

A growing community

As a GMP+ certified company, you are part of a growing and committed community of over 19,000 companies in 87 countries. GMP+ certified companies enjoy a very solid reputation for being reliable and committed to feed safety.

Independent audits

GMP+ certified companies are audited yearly by auditors working for independent Certification Bodies.
