Seafood and Ports
RS has worked with the Seafood and Ports sector for over twenty years, at the forefront of national and international supply chain assurance. Our unrivalled knowledge and expertise has been instrumental in the development of certification schemes covering every seafood sector, from fishing ports, responsible fishing, fisheries management, and aquaculture through to marine ingredients production and processing.
RS offers the international Seafood and Ports Sectors expert advice through our key services of Consulting and Benchmarking, Sustainability support and Multistakeholder initiatives. This can involve risk assessment support and the provision of management frameworks and tools that deliver effective resilience, market advantage and risk mitigation in operations and in seafood supply chains.
We can help you build resilience against the hazards that impact health, welfare, productivity and the supply of safe, high quality, nutritious seafood.
