APPI Membership: Continuous Improvement

The Animal Protein Producers Industry (APPI) oversees the rendering industry biosecurity programs in North America. APPI programs feature ways to control biological, chemical, and physical hazards and to comply with changing feed regulations. APPI is a committee within the National Renderers Association and is open to all renderers.

APPI’s mission is to assist member companies in manufacturing safe products. The Rendering Code of Practice corresponds very closely to the biosecurity initiatives taking place throughout the entire food chain and furthers the concept of safe feed – healthy livestock – safe food – healthy people. With continued intense scrutiny on all feed ingredients, the development of the Code of Practice years ago by renderers shows great foresight. The leading edge of the rendering industry is renderers who participate in this Code of Practice, with a list of participants at This certification includes independent third-party audits and aligns with the Safe Feed/Safe Food program of the American Feed Industry Association. Certifying with the latest version of the Code of Practice will:
· better ensure compliance with the Food Safety Modernization Act;
· assure customers that a renderer is a verified safe supplier;
· offer a single audit for recognition by two well-known programs;
· help employees take pride in their work; and
· identify opportunities for continuous improvement.

APPI will continue to develop innovative programs to promote the safety of animal proteins and feed fats through testing, continuing education and training, and collaborative research. When new regulations are issued, APPI programs will make any needed adjustments to keep participants up to date.
