Why Santa Monica Seafood Is the Leader in Food Safety
As discussed on our website’s Food Safety section, Santa Monica Seafood is the first and only seafood company in the United States to achieve both the internationally recognized FSSC 22000 and ISO 14001 certifications.
ISO 14001:2015 recognizes that standards throughout our entire operation help continually reduce our environmental impact.
FSSC 22000 certification helps ensure that you are buying from a company with the best food manufacturing systems in the world and that our products consistently meet all quality, safety and labeling requirements. It shows that we are serious about food safety, have greater traceability of our products, and that our systems and processes are independently verified against recognized standards of excellence.
We also maintain current Marine Stewardship Council Chain-of-Custody certification on a wide variety of species.
GAA/BAP Certified – BAP certification is administered by the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA), a nonprofit organization dedicated to advocacy, education and leadership in responsible aquaculture. GAA continually invests in advocacy initiatives – including addressing the 95% of aquaculture facilities worldwide that are not yet third-party certified.
