The Feed Adviser Register (FAR) was launched in 2013 set up by AIC and the feed sector in response to the Governments’ commitment and industry and customer demands to reduce emissions from farmed livestock.
Since the launch of 1,100 feed advisers are now registered including the NWF Sales Team. Registered feed advisers have already demonstrated their knowledge in areas of animal nutrition, welfare, feeding efficiency and animal health with the completion of FAR Module 1 and 2. In addition, the launch of FAR Module 3 ensures all registered feed advisers receive training on Environmental Policy and the practical ways to mitigate emissions on farm.
The NWF Sales Specialists are all registered as FAR Feed Advisers.

NWF Agriculture focuses on delivering continual consistent quality to our customers. To achieve this, extensive internal Quality Control systems are in place, which has allowed us to develop full traceability of all manufactured products. Daily routine (and spot check) samples are taken from both incoming raw materials and our own finished products, for in house laboratory testing & external analysis. This seeks to provide assurance to our customers that Standards are maintained and therefore allow them to develop confidence in our products and our advice.
All our feed and blend manufacturing sites are fully accredited participants in the UFAS (Universal Feed Assurance Scheme), which is required in compliance with EU Food & Feed Legislation, and we are members of AIC (Agricultural Industries Confederation).
NWF have FIAS (Fertiliser Industry Assurance Scheme) status for our Fertiliser business, and the protected feed plant is operated in accordance to FEMAS (Feed Materials assurance scheme).
