The safety of food products is one of the priorities of the policy of many countries in the world. In the European Union a complex strategy of food safety called ‘from farm to fork’ is realized and it covers: food safety, animal health and well-being as well as plant health. The feeds play the key role in the world food industry assuring the production of raw materials and food products of animal origin. One of the most serious threats in feeds is Salmonella spp., in processed crops and industrial compound feeds. The realization of the given stages, starting from plants production, their storage, processing up to obtaining the final product in the form of feeds shall take place based on GAP-Good Agriculture Practice, GMP-Good manufacture practice and GSP-Good Storage Practice. An important element in feeds production safety monitoring is also HACCP (Hazard analysis and critical control points) system. The process of mixing feed is a key stage influencing the quality of the obtained product, and thus conditioning safety of the production. Aim of this article is to present current trends and issues related to the technology of production and quality of feed in terms of food safety, particularly methods of manufacture. In this work such issues as legislative and institutional actions, chemical, microbiological or physical threats, quality management and control tools in the feed production as well as mixing, pelleting and methods for compound feeds homogeneity assessment are presented.
