Quality CertificatesQuality Certificates
ISO 9001:Every process in our company is certificated according to the quality management system ISO 9001:2008, to guarantee our customers that Soleé soles and the company procedures have been tested and are under the strictest self-control. To confirm this certification process, Bureau Veritas audit us every 12 months to double check that every process follows the established parameters.
Our Company is in possession of the ISO 14001:2004 certification. That means we have successfully established an effective environmental management system, where the profitability of an industrial activity does not harms the surrounding natural area. This is a key issue for the Company, due to all of our facilities are placed in naturals parks.
At the moment, the ASC Certification (Aquaculture Stewardship Council), specific for raised species, does not include farmed soles because this activity is very recent and restricted to only a handful of companies in the. The ISO 14001:2004 is the most similar certification within this context and would be the more relevant certification for our customers at this regard.
Friend of the Sea:Within the complex market for organic or bio-aquaculture certificates, in which clearly defined parameters are lacking, the Friends of the Sea certification achieved by the Company supports a sustainable aquaculture production for the Soleé sole with well-defined parameters:
- No impact on critical habitat (e.g.: mangroves, wetlands, etc).
- Compliance with waste water parameters.
- Reduction of escapes and bycatches to a negligible level.
- No use of harmful antifoulants or growth hormones.
- Compliance with Social Accountability.
- Gradual reduction of carbon footprint.
