Globalisation of the food supply chain has increased complexity and potential risks across the seafood production industry, as buyers must comply with a plethora of international and national legal requirements. Seafood quality assurance enables manufacturers and suppliers to achieve the legal compliance necessary to access international markets.
Seafood fraud is also a growing problem. This includes the mislabelling of seafood, where species that are less desirable, cheaper or more readily available are disguised as other fish such as wild salmon or Atlantic cod. Manufacturers therefore need to ensure traceability of raw materials throughout the supply chain, and independent third-party verification of your seafood products will help to identify possible fraud.
