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®

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 with regards to the feeds used by the aquaculture industry.

The programme’s five pillars of Certified Quality & Food Safety, Ingredient & Supplier Assessment and Management, Monitoring & Control, Risk Management, and Tracking & Tracing are the bedrock upon which we safeguard the manufacture of high-quality feeds 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 only healthy, safe and sustainable raw materials from approved suppliers are used for the production of fish and shrimp feeds.

Monitoring & Control

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

Risk Management

enables the correct decisions to be taken 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.


Skretting Canada is certified according to ISO 9000, HACCP, Best Aquaculture Practices, Canadian Organic Aquaculture standards, the Global G.A.P. standard as well as Skretting’s internal Nutrace® standard.
