Feed-to-food quality and safety

 

Skretting has implemented quality assurances and controls in order to minimize the aquaculture industry’s exposure to risks and to preserve our leadership in the global fish and shrimp feed market. Nutrace® is Skretting’s food safety and quality system. This unique concept integrates measures to ensure quality and safety from feed raw materials through to finished products.

The following movie "Tracing the Truth" shows how all steps in Skretting's feed production is traced from feed raw materials to finished feed delivered to fish farms, and vice versa.

 

The role of Nutrace®
