Polar Quality Certifications
We are proud to say that we are certified quality. We don’t mess with sustainability.
Our fish is caught and harvested along the Norwegian coastline, above the Arctic Circle and beneath the northern lights, in pure seas full of nutritious raw materials. This is how we want it to be. Therefore, we take our responsibility to protect and conserve our resources seriously. We want our future generations to reap the benefits of these resources, as we do. That is why we are proud to say that we are certified.
Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)
To be certified by The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), means that we are recognized and rewarded because of our fish is caught sustainable. The MSC operates a global seafood certification program where fisheries that captures fish wild caught, can become certified as sustainable to the MSC standards for sustainable fishing, and suppliers can receive chain of custody certification for seafood traceability standards. This means that each company in the supply chain handling or selling an MSC certified product, are traceable and must have a valid MSC Chain of Custody certificate. This assures all seafood-buyers that all seafood from Polar Quality that is MSC labelled, comes from a certified sustainable fishery. Read more at https://www.msc.org/
The Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC)
ASC is an independent, international non-profit organization that has developed a certification program for responsible aquaculture. To be certified and to sell products labelled by ASC, means that the products has met the ASC standards. This ensures the consumer that the seafood they are purchasing is sustainable for the environment and socially sustainable.
The ASC-label complements the MSC-label mentioned above. While the MSC is a certificate on sustainable wild caught fish, the ASC certificate proves that farmed fish is sustainable farmed, with a minimum impact on the environment and society. Read more at https://www.asc-aqua.org/.
