To ensure food safety and verify the origin and sustainability of Genuine Alaska Pollock®, producers have developed a system that allows them to completely trace their products – from the final fillet or surimi block all the way back to the harvesting vessel, the boat’s position, the date and time of catch, and the specific haul. Real-time satellite technology also allows the fishing companies to track the exact position of their boats at any given time.
Product Traceability Measures
1. Every product is stamped with a date code that indicates the processing date, time and plant.
2. From the date code, the producer can trace back to incoming product data, including temperature and quality of fish as it enters the plant, when it was caught, and the vessel that caught it.
