Traceability is defined as the ability to trace and follow food, feed and food-producing animals through all stages of production and distribution.

Our role in traceability lies first and foremost in the process of tracking our products as it moves between our storage locations or to our customers.

In instances where an issue of contamination arises, and a product recall is required, we, at 999, find it absolutely vital to have an effective traceability system in place. Our system ensures that our customers have timely and accurate information to minimise the impact on feed safety and throughout our customers' businesses.

But we think there is more to traceability than tracking our products. We value a traceability system that can handle information in the supply chain all the way back to the fisheries themselves.

Concerns of consumers and requirements from authorities regarding the safety and quality of products are higher than ever and continue to grow. Their questions no longer concern only: "Where does the product come from?", but also have to do with sustainability and how the product was produced.

We have a traceability system, therefore, that is certified according to the MSC Chain of Custody. The MSC Chain of Custody standard for seafood traceability is a well-known standard that makes sure the consumers can have confidence that the fish meal they are buying can be traced back to a fishery.
