Looking for a sample letter to send to a local farmer who wants to purchase our Not for Human Consumption food waste. I know that it needs to list our ingredients and discuss traceability but this is my first dive into animal feed post FSMA. Please help :)

I'm not sure how to go about this. Your state land grant university should be able to help you. https://nifa.usda.go...bsite-directory

Your county extension office may be able to help as well - at least get you in contact with the right person.

what is the purpose of the letter?   is that something the farmer is asking for?  normally they are mostly concerned with ingredients / nutritional content, etc

Depending on what your selling and the state, you may need a feed license and / or pay a tonnage fees.

Check with your state.  In Wisconsin, you need to have an animal feed license with the department of agriculture, trade, and consumer protection.

My state extension office responded with “From a FSMA perspective, they have no obligations because if the farm is feeding it without further processing then it doesn’t fall qualify as an “animal food” for preventive controls. Beyond that, I was not aware that they had to disclose any other info.”

 

I will double check on the state license. Thank you everyone for your help.
