Seafood services from SGS – ensure the quality, safety and sustainability of your seafood

Sea Food

As wild seafood supplies dwindle, consumers are becoming increasingly reliant on farm-raised supplies, sourced far from the dinner table. Retailers and food service organizations must encourage equal consumption of wild and farm-raised products. Meeting consumer demands for safety and sustainability while managing the supply chain's risks in a price competitive marketplace is a challenge for the industry. We can help you to ensure your seafood suppliers meet essential quality, safety and sustainability requirements.
