Business Challenge


The Seafood supply-chain is made up of fragmented suppliers from many countries. Many species combined with multiple production methods (fishing, farming, processing) make it complex to insure traceability, safety and quality. As consumption is continuously increasing, the demand for seafood from fisheries is high but there is a need to avoid over-fishing and the destruction of marine eco-systems.

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, very concerned by food safety are now asking for proof of the sustainability of their seafood sourcing

  • Food safety and quality
