The Morpol traceability system can track back from the final pack, for example on a retailer’s shelf, to details of how and when the fish was processed, and back again to the original suppliers with specific batch numbers and dates.
The origin of all the fish and other ingredients is recorded on arrival and this information is linked to the lot code on the final product. Traceable information includes the supplier, product specification and the date and time it arrived. The fish and other products are tracked through the entire process and into their final packaging, together with information destinations and customers, all linked with the final product lot code.
The traceability system meets the specifications in certifications held by Morpol. These include International Featured Standards (IFS) and British Retail Consortium (BRC).
