The benefits of sustainable fisheries and fish farming and the need to mitigate the environmental impacts of fishing and aquaculture are increasingly in the public consciousness.
Combine this with the globalisation of food chains and suppliers, it is clear that the complexity and potential risks of the seafood product business has increased.
With manufacturers being responsible for health risks and fraud arising from their products, they need to ensure traceability of raw materials throughout the supply chain. For seafood producers, it is important to meet the safety, quality and social compliance requirements of manufacturers – and indeed the consumer – who wants to know that the seafood they eat is safe and sustainably sourced.
As a result, the role of assurance in the quest for seafood safety and sustainability has never been clearer; robust assurance is the common thread that links the challenges facing organisations today and helps build a sustainable future for us all.
