Feed-to-food quality and safety

Skretting has implemented dynamic quality assurance and control at every stage of our production. We do this to ensure feed and food safety, quality and to preserve our leadership in the global aquafeed market.

In addition to auditing our internal operations, all of our suppliers undergo a comprehensive evaluation and approval process to ensure the supply of premium-quality, renewable and responsibly managed resources. Robust analyses of all approved raw materials are subsequently conducted at delivery, throughout the formulation process and up to the point that the feeds are released to our customers. 

The role of Nutrace®

Nutrace® is Skretting’s company-wide management programme that ensures feed-to-food safety and quality. It has been developed in such a way that all potential risks associated with aquaculture feed production are minimised and that any irregularities are quickly found and acted upon. This unique concept allows our customers and end-consumers to have full confidence in the feed used by the aquaculture industry.

Nutrace consists of five pillars:

  • Certified Quality & Food Safety
  • Ingredient & Supplier Assessment and Management
  • Monitoring & Control
  • Risk Management
  • Tracking & Tracing

These are the bedrocks upon which we safeguard the manufacture of high-quality feed from sustainable raw materials.

Certified Quality & Food Safety

guarantees consistent formulation of high-quality, reliable feeds at our plants through the implementation of several international certifications, systems and internal procedures as well as the Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point (HACCP) standard.

Ingredient & Supplier Assessment and Management

ensures healthy, safe and sustainable raw materials from approved suppliers are used for the production of aquafeed.

Monitoring & Control

incorporates a comprehensive global monitoring programme that ensures safety throughout the production chain.

Risk Management

enables the correct decisions to be made to minimise risks and unwanted situations arising. It also expedites professional crisis handling, should an emergency arise.

Tracking & Tracing

ensures the efficient flow of information between Skretting, our suppliers, fish farmers and fish buyers. This rapid flow of data is essential for implementing dynamic recall systems.
