At Chrisfish Danmark, quality always plays a vital role, and quality assurance is therefore a key word in our company. We are committed to ensuring that all our products, from fresh fish to prawns in brine, are synonymous with great taste and high quality. Product safety is therefore a motivating factor for purchases, both now and in the future.
We perform daily chemical inspections at our production plants and have our own microbiological quality control laboratory. Here, our laboratory technicians perform detailed bacteriological analysis on both raw materials and end products.
To ensure our customers receive products of the highest quality, we are certified according to the following international quality standards:
IFS – International Food Standard
IFS is a recognised international food standard developed by an association of German, French and Italian supermarket chains to create a basis for comparison and transparency at all levels of supply.
The standard aims to ensure quality and food safety for retailers. Its requirements include quality and resource management, corporate responsibility, personnel policy, production flow, laboratory analysis etc.
MSC – Marine Stewardship Council
MSC is an independent labelling scheme for environmentally friendly and sustainable fisheries. This is the only labelling scheme for wild-caught fish that meets the UN’s international standards for eco-labelling of sustainable fisheries. The MSC was established in 1997 as a collaboration between Unilever and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), and subsequently became an independent organisation in 1999. The purpose of the MSC is to promote sustainability in fisheries at an international level, to ensure that no over-fishing or depletion of endangered species occurs.
MSC-labelled seafood products reward those wishing to operate a sustainable fisheries business, and the label is effectively combating illegal fishing and enabling producers and consumers to make sustainable choices. The MSC has also developed the blue MSC label to guide consumers, who can look for the label on the product’s packaging.
ASC – Aquaculture Stewardship Council
ASC is an independent international non-profit organization. Founded in 2010 in cooperation with WWF and IDH (Dutch Sustainable Trade Initiative), the ASC is a recognized standard of certification which ensures that the aquacultural farming of seafood transpires in an ethically sound way. By reducing the use of antibiotics, assisting in protecting the eco-systems and biodiversity surrounding farms, reducing the use of pesticides and chemicals, etc. ASC certification helps shift the aquaculture industry towards more sustainable production.
Social responsibility is also an important part of ASC certification. With ASC labelling, the consumer receives a guarantee that the seafood product is farmed in a secure facility, with fair wages and proper working conditions. The ASC, for example, does not label products produced by child labor.
As guidance for the consumer, ASC certified products are labelled with the green ASC logo. The logo helps you recognize responsibly farmed seafood and rewards you.
