To continue high standards in efficiency and quality of supply, ANCO recruited Manfred Rössler as Supply Chain Director effective from November this year.
Manfred has long standing experience in the animal feed industry for sourcing raw materials and effectively managing supply on a global level in the production of natural feed additives. In the past he has also been involved in developing quality management systems.
Manfred graduated from the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna, with a master’s degree in Biotechnology- On top of that he is currently completing an MBA program in Logistics & Supply Chain Management from the Danube University Krems, Austria. The team will benefit from his newly gained knowledge on agile supply chain management.
Looking forward to his new role Manfred Rössler comments “I am excited to join a progressive company, with an innovative, cost-effective product line and make a difference to competitive animal production. The rules and regulations in animal feed production are getting stricter and expectations of high quality standards in production are increasing in our industry. So I am glad to see that accreditation for quality standards are important to ANCO.”
ANCO was audited as a GMP + supplier. The GMP + certification is important to a number of our animal feed customers, as it ensures that our products meet their requirements for feed safety and sustainability. It is also an international scheme, applicable worldwide.
Modern competitive animal production calls for a contribution to safe and responsible food of animal origin. GMP + is a quality mark that guarantees participating companies from the international food chain reliability, quality, sustainability and safety.
In recent years public concern about the safety of foods of animal origin has increased. This has prompted a scrutiny of food safety and quality problems that can arise in foods of animal origin as a result of animal feed, forage and associated feeding systems.
The GMP+ Feed Safety Assurance scheme is a scheme for assuring feed safety in all the links in the feed chain. The GMP+ standard does not only define conditions relating to production facilities of feed, but also for storage, transport, staff, procedures and documentation.
