ENVIRONMENT AND QUALITY
WE SAY YES TO SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
We at Fiskano are members of the fishing industry’s national association which, among other things, safeguards the sustainable use of our fish resources.
It is by following the recommendations based on authorities’ issued targets and goals that we fill in our share of our social responsibility.
For Fiskano, responsibility is about ensuring a sustainable future for our children and safeguarding public health.
It is very much a social commitment to provide our customers with one of the world’s healthiest foods by providing and recommending organic and MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) And ASC ( Aquaculture Stewardship Council) certified products.
Through our own production facilities’ certifications, such as HACCP, BRC etc., it is very clear how we handle the environmental aspect. For instance, we use special fishing nets that are designed to prevent dolphins from getting caught in the nets by mistake. We work hard to make the best use of our resources and coordinate our work as much as possible to avoid waste of resources.
AQUACULTURE STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL
We at Fiskano can offer ASC labeled seafood and shellfish grown in a responsible and sustainable way. ASC Chain of Custody certification is a relatively new global environmental certification for farmed seafood. The labeling guarantees that the production is handled responsibly and that it is possible to trace the fish back to where it was farmed. The requirements for cultivation according to the ASC standards vary somewhat depending on the species, location and method of cultivation. For cultivation to become ASC-certified, it is necessary, among other things, that the feed is sustainable produced and the water released from the cultivation is purified. It is also an important instrument to preserve habitats and biodiversity and to promote good animal health, for example, reducing the use antibiotics.
Fiskano is certified to the BRC standard, which guarantees food safety, also in terms of transport and storage. This standard guarantees quality, safety and operational criteria to ensure that manufacturers meet their statutory obligations and provide protection for the end consumer.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is basically a concept for a corporate social and civic responsibility and, in a larger context, a social responsibility, which broadly means that we as a company must take responsibility for human rights and sustainable environmental development.
The goal of CSR for Swedish companies is to do good business for everyone involved according to rules that ensure that all manufacturing takes place in forms that are acceptable and that we take this into account in our operations at Fiskano.
As a member of REPA, Fiskano takes on its producer responsibility and through this we contribute to Sweden being one of the best recycling countries in the world. Since 1994, Sweden has a producer responsibility for packaging. This means that anyone who manufactures, imports or sells a package is responsible for collecting and recycling it.
Fiskano’s MSC certification number is MSC-C-50711. Our wild-caught seafood products marked with this certification number come from a fishery that is certified in accordance with the Marine Stewardship Council’s environmental requirements for well-managed and sustainable fishing. (www.msc.org).
MSC is an independent, global, non-profit organization working to protect the world’s seafood resources by promoting the best environmental choices and to secure existing stocks.
Fiskano has an approved HACCP plan in place, which means that the company reviews all the risks that exist in the production chain to ensure consumer safety and that we are constantly working to continue to minimize the risks.
This HACCP plan also means that we follow the set limits and regulations that exist and that we constantly check that they are followed.
Fiskano always follows existing laws and regulations, but its own rules often extend beyond that. Business decisions are based on honest competition, integrity, product quality, price and customer service.
Fiskano values open communication with all parties involved in the company’s operations, whether they are employees, customers or end consumers. Company information is always available and we will answer questions as soon as possible .
