Quality and Inspection

Northbay Pelagic complies with all EU/USDA approvals.

As a primary supplier to secondary processors (canneries and smokehouses) who provide products to major UK and International retailers the company must and does comply with the rigorous and exacting procedures and audits required.

Northbay Pelagic has of course full traceability on all fish landed to the factory and hasĀ Marine Stewardship Council certification for the facility.

The company has full H.A.C.C.P controls in place.

The Quality Control department within the facility has its own sophisticated lab to ensure all necessary tests are carried through and they constantly check for grades, fat levels and fish temperature to ensure the product is of the highest quality at all times. The lab also checks for salmonella, listeria, TBVN, histamine and nematodes and other parasitic pests.

Northbay Pelagic welcomes on-site inspections by customers during the processing of their orders.
