Demonstrate traceability, food safety, quality, social accountability & sustainability, throughout the seafood supply-chain

Business ChallengeS

The Seafood supply-chain is composed of fragmented suppliers from many countries. Many species associated with multiple production methods (fishing, farming, processing) make traceability, safety and quality complex. As consumption continues to increase, demand for seafood products from fisheries is high, but it is necessary to avoid overfishing and the destruction of marine ecosystems.

The rapid expansion of aquaculture presents challenges to water quality, pressures on the environment, accelerates disease transmission, and drives the need to assure safe feed whilst maintaining food safety.

In this context, retailers and restaurant chains, genuinely concerned about food safety, are now asking for evidence of the sustainability of their seafood supply.
