Quality management

Food safety and product quality is highest priority. Throughout the value chain, our skilled and experienced quality control department, has implemented strict quality control procedures. This ensure that we hold ourselves to the highest hygiene standard and produce superior pelagic fish products.

Our fishing vessels have quality inspection work stations onboard. Likewise, our pelagic processing plant, Varðin Pelagic, has three quality control stations at different stages of processing. This allows us to minimize unpredictability, keep detailed documentation and have complete traceability of our products from catch to distribution. So, if any problems occur in the value chain which compromise product quality or food safety, we are able to locate and fix the problems without delay.

Our fishing fleet has, together with the company, Nótaskip, obtained MSC-certificate for sustainable fishery of Atlantic mackerel, Atlantic herring and blue whiting.

MSC certificate

The Faroese Food, Veterinary and Environmental Agency conducts regular inspections at our processing plant, in order to secure that our production meets all necessary requirements in accordance with the food safety legislation.
