Transparency & Food Safety

Complete traceability is fundamental to food safety. BioMar procedures and registrations contribute to full traceability both forwards and backwards in the food production chain. All feed ingredients can be traced back through BioMar's production and warehouses to the supplier of each individual raw material. Similarly, any raw material or finished feed can be traced to the individual farmer who has received the feed from BioMar.

The global need for food will increase, and aquaculture can become a very important player in establishing sufficient and sustainable food production, according to the UN.

BioMar works with customers to improve the sustainability of their farming activities. We use sustainably sourced raw materials – delivered by responsible suppliers. We enhance transparency and traceability throughout the whole supply chain.  And we always search for new and more sustainable raw materials.

We always strive to reduce our own environmental footprint.
