ANAC recently attended a meeting with the CFIA, Veterinary Drugs Directorate (VDD), Canadian Animal Health Institute (CAHI), Canadian Pork Council (CPC) and Chicken Farmers of Canada (CFC) to discuss the ongoing challenges with approvals of zootechnical additives for use in Canada.

On April 8th, ANAC submitted formal comments to CFIA on the consolidated feed regulatory framework proposal, which was published in January and discussed with industry in a series of “town hall” workshops across the country in February and March.

There are projections that between 60 to 70% more animal products will be consumed in 2050 than today, resulting in an increased requirement for feed.

In the September/October newsletter, we reported on the steps ANAC is taking to identify possible technical, regulatory and policy solutions to ergot in feed.
