The Division of Inspection and Consumer Services (ICS) programs provide economic protection to agricultural producers and ensure that Colorado consumers receive products that are safe, properly labeled, and sold in an honest manner. ICS regulates animal feed, fertilizer, anhydrous ammonia, compost, farm products dealers, commodity handlers/grain warehouses, scales and other measuring devices, pricing and package weight accuracy, eggs, home food service plan operators, custom meat plants and wild game processors. ICS also has two laboratories: the Metrology Laboratory and the Biochemistry Laboratory. Watch this short video to learn more about the ICS division.
