TUNA SUPPLY CHAIN

Ensure traceability, food-safety, quality and sustainability

How can you demonstrate that your tuna supply-chain is compliant?

Tuna is sourced from 3 oceans, by numerous different operators across many countries.

This creates complexity insuring traceability. Hence, NGOs and consumers are requiring more proof of sustainability for Tuna products (fresh, frozen or canned).

In this context, retailers and restaurant chains, very concerned with food safety are also asking for proof of “responsible sourcing”.

FAQ

  • What is the difference between Bureau Veritas Recognition and a Product Certification (eco-label) ?

    Bureau Veritas Recognition is a process to recognize traceability and best practices between fishing
    vessel and the supply-chain. The standard is prepared by the client with assistance from Bureau Veritas on request. A fishing eco-label is a “B to C” certification based on a sustainable fishery standard(efficient fishery management toward sustainability). The fishing products can be identified
    with a logo (i.e. MSC) which ensures traceability from fishing vessels to the final consumer (Chain of Custody certification).

  • In the BV Recognition process, why does Bureau Veritas perform inspection, at sea ?

    Many clients want to prove their commitment to respect marine resources, the environment,
    food safety and best social practices. 75% of these criteria are applicable at the ‘on vessel’ stage,
    during fishing and it became apparent that ensuring compliancy in the process meant being on board. With our significant experience with observation programs, BV’s experts perform these evaluations with strong knowledge of the rules applicable on boats (safety, regulation and living conditions).
