When it comes to sustainability and corporate social responsibility, so far, the wishes of our customers and their own customers (often consumers) for Functional Oils have been an important guideline. More and more customers want to buy only certified sustainable fish oil. This means that the fish oil is traceable and originates from renewable sources, i.e. from species of fish that are caught safely and in compliance with specified quotas.
After an extensive two day audit, Smit & zoon was once again approved as a sustainable supplier according to the IFFO RS standards. We proved to have great traceability procedures in place and will receive our new certificate once the current one, valid until July 2017, reaches its end date.
