Weesp, The Netherlands, October 4, 2017 – From January, 2018, onwards Smit & zoon will sell its Functional Oils business to IQI B.V., a supplier of pet food ingredients such as fish meal and fish oil.
The Functional Oils activities are no longer a focus segment for Smit & zoon that wishes to expand its leading position in the development and production of chemicals primarily used in the manufacturing and finishing of leather.
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.
The next step in CSR, Smit & zoon successfully completed the SMETA audit
As a part of our CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) policy, Smit & zoon wants to provide a long term positive contribution to society. To achieve this goal, one of our actions has been to endorse the ETI Base Code. Our objective is to follow its principles and to encourage other to do so as well.
Friend of the Sea: Sustainable Seafood Products Certification
Smit Functional Oils is proud to announce their new Friend of the Sea (FoS) certification.
As an important fish oil supplier, sustainability and traceability are some of the key words in our business and this certification emphasizes our efforts in this matter.
