Sustainability is in the spotlight, and fish processing companies can no longer ignore the trend (and requirements). More and more companies in the fishing industry see the necessity of sustainable fishing and communicate this to the customer by producing caught or farmed fish based on the requirements for the MSC or ASC quality mark. In addition, all companies in the fish industry must comply with ever stricter legislation and regulations in the field of food safety.
Legislation in the field of food-safe production and import is constantly changing. For example, fishery products placed on the EU market must contain a label with information to ensure traceability. This contains information about the trade name, production method and origin of the fish. Because traceability is part of an effective quality system, we are happy to give you advice on this. That way you control the risks that occur at various stages of the chain.
We are strongly represented in the fishing industry and especially in fish processing companies and packing stations. Whether it concerns quality systems such as BRC, IFS, FSSC 22000, HACCP and SQF or product quality marks such as MSC or ASC, we are fully familiar with them.
Because of our many contacts in the fishing industry and with certification bodies and the NVWA, we are able to translate the maze of laws and regulations into a practical quality system that works for you. Thanks to our targeted way of working, we help your fish to meet all requirements and we advise you on how to control pathogens, such as the pathogenic bacterium Listeria monocytogenes, as well as possible.
Because it is important that all relevant employees are aware of the impact they have on quality and food safety, we offer specific quality and sustainability training courses that are Cedeo-certified. During this training, employees gain more insight into the meaning of sustainability and food safety. New is our E-learning Hygiene code for the fish retail trade.
