Quality and Traceability
Andromeda Group integrates different companies that comprise the entire aquaculture cycle: reproduction and breeding, fry transport, pre-growing, processing, packaging and commercialization, etc.
Its traceability starts with the reproducers and extends throughout the process to the final customer, including even the feed used in each stage of the process and packaging materials:
- reproducers and eggs
- fish during growing
- the final product
- the used feed
- materials used through the entire process
A unique serial number and a special assigned codification during the packaging process – and reflected in the bar code – offer total traceability, from the raw material to the delivery of the final product.
Quality and sanitary controls extended throughout the whole cycle to ensure the fish well-being and a perfect sanitary condition that result in an optimal development and in obtaining a high-quality product, nutritious, healthy and with total sanitary guarantee.
Frescamar Alimentación exhaustively analyzes its suppliers demanding strict compliance with hygienic and safety regulations along with other quality requirements and technical specifications, so that the final product fully meets its customers’ expectations.
These efforts have meant the achievement of internationally recognized certifications in terms of quality and food safety, such as ISO 9001, ISO 22000, ISO 14001, GLOBAL G.A.P., IFS and BRC. These last two have recently been achieved with very high scores.
The company is currently working on the implementation of the IFS and BRC standards, the most valued among food industry.
