Commercial Animal Feed and Pet Food Program



The purpose of the North Carolina Commercial Feed Law is to regulate the manufacture and distribution of commercial feed within the state. It provides for annual registration of commercial feed and pet food that is distributed in the state. The annual registration fee is $5.00 for packages of over 5 pounds net weight, $40.00 for packages of only 5 pounds or less and $12.00 for canned (in cans or hermetically sealed containers)pet food. A state-wide inspection service is maintained for checking feed labeling for compliance with the current Good Manufacturing Practice Regulations and for collecting official samples for analysis. Chemical and microscopic analyses are performed by the Feed Laboratory to insure feed products are safe and effective for their intended purposes.
