The AFMA Technical Committee is responsible for all feed manufacturing-, nutrition- and feeding related matters. The Committee meets four times per year and is regularly attended by more than 50 representatives from feed- and ingredient manufacturers across South Africa. The Technical Committee is engaged in a number of projects which are managed through dedicated portfolio committees. Each of the portfolio committees has a primary convenor and its members are voluntary industry experts (AFMA members) and/or invited specialists.

The following portfolio committees and projects are currently active:

Monitoring: SalmonellaAssessing the latest trends on salmonella contamination to continuously update the AFMA salmonella monitoring guidelines and sampling schedule for critical raw materials.
