About us


Founded in 1977, the Association of Manufacturers and Formulators of Enzyme Products (AMFEP) is a non-profit European industry association

The main objectives of AMFEP are:

  • to provide a common basis for representing the interests of its members both toward the institutions of the European Union as well as national authorities;
  • to represent the interests of its members in international organisations;
  • to assure a free flow of information between its members on developments related to the regulatory status of enzymes in the EU;
  • to inform its customers and other interested parties on the efficacy and safety aspects of its enzyme products;
  • to defend and promote the products of the enzyme industry.

Members of AMFEP produce and sell enzymes for use in food, feed, detergents and other non-food industries, excluding enzymes for pharmaceutical and diagnostic use. 

Amfep fruitfully co-operates with European institutions and partner associations in the EU, Japan and USA.

Amfep has observer status in Codex Alimentarius and is Member of the EFSA Stakeholders Consultative platform.
