Our approach to quality in fish farming
Standards, labels and certification
- RCNA Certification
Certification Standard Animal Nutrition, or Référentiel de Certification Nutrition Animale in French, is based on the responsibility of the manufacturer’s management to manage food safety, best practice, and the production process.
- Global GAP Certification
A Label that is based on legal conformity, food safety, health and safety at work for the employees, social practices and risk management, animal welfare and environmental impact.
- HACCP Method
A system for analysing the different dangers and the identification of key points for their management.
- « Raw materials and finished products » Monitoring plan
Linked to a precise sampling plan, it involves the evaluation of regularity, and the conformity of the raw materials received and of the finished feeds.
- STNO Certification
This certification guarantees a limit of < 0,9% GMO from raw materials in the finished feed.
Quality audit for our raw material suppliers
Biological, chemical and physical monitoring of our raw materials and feeds
Since 2003, Le Gouessant has had its own laboratory and has equipped itself with extremely high performance equipment, such as near infra-red technology (NIR for Near Infra Red) which enables the nutritional values of raw materials and finished products to be predicted. Its tasks are the following:
- To control the conformity of raw materials and finished products with the standards required
- To ensure that the product maintains all of its characteristics and nutritional values after each stage of manufacture
The external analyses are carried out by our partner laboratories that are referenced and accredited NF EN ISO/IEC 17025 and OQUALIM.
As part of our initiative for continual improvement, Le Gouessant Aquaculture has structured its participatory and sustainable approach as Operational Excellence. Its aim: to continually improve our client satisfaction, the working conditions of our staff, and our organisational efficiency.
This strategy is built on four pillars :
The plurality of our quality labels
Engaged in plural and sustainable farming, Le Gouessant offers a wide range of standards and new opportunities for outlets. As a result, our team has perfected several ranges of certified feeds for fish farming with labels that are recognised in France and internationally.
Our teams will help you put your quality initiatives linked to labelled fish production into place.
