Secure Food Supply

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Introduction to Secure Food Supply Plans - What are they? ​

The Secure Food Supply (or SFS) plans are voluntary plans to help producers prepare for a foreign animal disease (FAD) outbreak. The plans are commodity-specific (for beef, milk, pork, poultry, sheep/wool, goat/milk/mohair) and use risk-based science. The plans provide guidance to help facilitate the safe movement of animals and animal products during an outbreak.

In the event of an FAD outbreak, movement of animals and animal products is likely to be restricted to prevent the outbreak from spreading. Yet for producers to maintain continuity of business, it is critical to be able to move animals and animal products to the next stage of production. The Secure Food Supply plans provide animal producers with guidance to proactively prepare for an FAD outbreak. This guidance will help limit exposure of animals to disease through enhanced biosecurity. Animals and animal products with no evidence of infection or contamination may qualify for a movement permit during a disease outbreak. Movement permits can contribute to business continuity for the entire industry, from animal owners to transporters and processors. Participating in a Secure Food Supply plan offers producers the best opportunity to move their animals and animal products during an FAD event.

How to Participate

Producers wanting to prepare for potential disease outbreaks and participate in the Secure Food Supply Plans should:

  1. ​Obtain a Premises Identification Number (PIN)​ for each premises participating.
  2. ​Review the appropriate commodity specific Secure Food Supply plan(s) and work with your veterinarian to develop or enhance and implement your biosecurity processes to satisfy plan standards. This includes a written biosecurity plan. 
  3. ​​Enroll in the ODA Secure Food Supply program by submitting the ODA Secure Food Supply enrollment form below and either:

a.​ Have ODA or a licensed, accredited veterinarian complete a biosecurity audit and submit to ​ODA the applicable Secure Food Supply Self Assessment Checklist for Enhanced Biosecurity.


b.​ Submit the written biosecurity plan (for each premises with a PIN) along with the enrollment form for review by an ODA veterinarian.
