The pastus+ policy has the following principles:
• Higher quality as well as more security and transparency in the production of animal feed through compliance with higher requirements
• Creation of a uniform quality standard for animal feed, which is also recognized by other international quality programs
• Better orientation and more certainty when buying additional feed for farmers within quality programs
For small-structured companies there is the possibility to be certified according to the pastus+ "small quantity regulation". The limit for participation in this regulation is 3,000 t or 6,000 t for several operational functions (e.g. compound feed production and trading).
For small regional manufacturers of feed materials, there is the possibility of integration via the pastus+ small manufacturer regulation. The upper limit for participation is 150 t, participation is possible for operators of grain and oil mills as well as breweries.
