MarinTrust Logo Guidelines
MarinTrust, formerly known as IFFO RS, is the leading independent business to business certification programme for the production of marine ingredients consisting of:
- the MarinTrust Standard for Responsible Supply,
- the MarinTrust Standard Chain of Custody for Responsible Supply
- and the MarinTrust Improver Programme
As a business-to-business certification programme the use of the MarinTrust logo is not eco-labelling directed at the end user of the marine ingredient products. All certified and accepted sites under the MarinTrust Programme must sign the Licence Agreement and Claims policy. This agreement allows MarinTrust to further protect and enforce the integrity of the logo and claim usage.
A transition period is set in place to allow companies to adjust to the new branding guidelines, more information on the transition and requirements can be found here.
