General Information:
The Feed Program administers the rules and regulations related to animal feeds by regulating truthful labeling and minimum quality standards for items offered, exposed or transported for sale in Georgia. The program is responsible for licensing of feed dealers and approving feed products, investigating complaints, and supervision of inspectors for feed regulations at dealer locations.

The Georgia Feed Laws and Rules and Regulations require that all feed manufacturers obtain a commercial feed license and register all pet foods or specialty pet foods in packages of 10 pounds or less. This Law is designed to ensure that feed manufacturers properly label their products. This is done by label review and product sampling.

Fee requirements: $75.00 for original license, $40.00 per pet food or specialty pet food less than or equal to 10 pounds. Renewal of license based on annual tonnage (maximum license fee and registration fees-$2,000.00).

A notarized Consent to Service of Process Form is required of all out of state companies.
