All manufactured products are registered and certified in Russia and abroad.

At customer’s request feeds zootechnical analysis can be performed. The company performs scientific support of its products, delivers assistance for feeds analysis and for development of balancing supplements for every enterprise.
Quality requirements for feed supplements (mixes, pre-mixes) are determined by the specificity of the final product — the feed stuff. Quality feeds must contain all the components declared in the recipe with certain quality and activity, must not contain toxins, pathogenic fungi, foreign substances etc. The feeds must be homogenic, must have the required humidity and fineness. The quantity of feed supplements is generated at all stages of production activity — from concluding contracts for delivering raw materials until the moment when ready feeds arrive at consumers. Quality control of raw materials, of technological processes and products aims at providing manufacturing of products which comply with the requirements of regulatory documents and those of the consumer. The main requirements to the quality of finished products are set in the regulatory documents (GOST standards, technical specifications) for the products. The order by the Russian Ministry of Agriculture No. 48 dated April 1, 2005 sets a unified registration procedure for Russian and foreign feed supplements and pharmaceuticals for animals.
