I am a retailer sourcing from the marine ingredients supply chain, what are the benefits of the IP?
If you are sourcing from a MarinTrust IP production site, this provides assurances that that site is sourcing from a MarinTrust Accepted FIP and has successfully passed a MarinTrust site audit using that raw material.
The MarinTrust IP claim can only be used further along the supply chain if the companies along that supply chain have MarinTrust CoC V2.0 which provides the assurance that that product has not been mixed or anything has been added to it following the original production.
I am involved with a fishery sourcing into the marine ingredient supply chain, what are the benefits of the IP?
The MarinTrust IP provides assurances that the raw material entering the supply chain is fully traceable from the fishery.
To get involved in the MarinTrust Improver Programme, the first step is to start a discussion with your buyers to identify the market needs and requirements of your raw material. Once these relationships have been built you can contact MarinTrust who can provide detailed information about the programme, the requirements and the benefits. Full details of the application process can be found here.
