25-27 April - Join Us Hall 8, booth 8-4741
Ensure traceability, food-safety, quality and sustainability
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”. How can you demonstrate that your tuna supply-chain is compliant?
Your goals, our offers
Traceability: from fishing vessel to consumers
Traceability: We can deliver Certifications with existing standards such as MSC® for logo use on fish from certified fishery or ISO 22005. For specific customer demand, we propose our Bureau Veritas Recognition such as FAD* Free tuna traceability. To complete our field evaluation, our Laboratories can test fish for species diagnosis and product integrity.
Social accountability: Bureau Veritas is approved to perform social evaluation in processing plant based on standards like ICS, SMETA , BSCI audits and SA 8000 or OHSAS 18000 certifications. For fishing companies, we propose to assess the vessels & crew, regarding ILO 188 Convention (respect of Human Rights and best practices on board).
Responsible fishery: we can perform pre-assessment and full assessment for the certification based on MSC fishery standards. In the chain, we deliver traceability certification on MSC Chain of Custody standard (MSC CoC).
Responsible sourcing: Bureau Veritas Recognition is based on a “B to B” customized standard adapted to your supply-chain, on traceability, environment and marine resource, social accountability, food-safety & quality. We propose our new service: SAFESUPPLY, a digital and collaborative platform helping food companies to improve the sustainability of their supply-chain and mitigating risks.
Fishery Observation Program: With our extensive experience in tuna fisheries, we can perform observations for tuna producer organizations, scientific Institutes, fishery agencies & RFMOs to collect scientific data, evaluate compliancy with regulation or good practices during fishing trip (selectivity, safety, quality, traceability…).
Inspection: At each stage of the supply-chain, Burear Veritas can monitor the traceability, cold chain, quantity, hygiene, freshness, grading & quality (during fishing trip, at transshipment, unloading at port, storage and processing).
Testing: in our accredited laboratories, we perform chemical testing (heavy metal, histamine, salt, species diagnosis, residues & pollutant, additives, product integrity), Microbiological, Organoleptic and Metrological testing.
