Quality and Sustainability of Mowi and Processing Facilities of Captain Omega

QMARINE: MOWI'S TOTAL QUALITY SYSTEM Qmarine is our Total Quality System. It encompasses the worldwide Mowi standards set to ensure that we operate in a responsible and consistent way throughout the company with regard to our responsibility for society, animals, nature and the environment as well as our employees.

Qmarine is made up of a number of strategic pillars that we continue to develop constantly with new and improved processes and procedures:

• Quality assurance
• Food safety
• Food quality
• Animal welfare
• Environmental responsibility
• Social responsibility

Quality Assurance Our quality assurance is based on a worldwide quality management database that contains all Qmarine standard operating procedures. These procedures provide guidelines on how to act and how to reach decisions with regard to each of the strategic pillars of Qmarine. They enable us to maintain the same high standards throughout the entire Mowi organization.

Food Safety Mowi undertakes to supply safe and documented food products. All our activities are organized in such a way that we can produce our food products in a safe manner and can protect their integrity. We constantly monitor and safeguard our products’ safety and integrity. We regularly align our way of working with the most recent scientific insights and best practices and make sure we comply with the current legislation and regulations of the countries where we produce and sell our products.

Food Quality Mowi processing facilities supply food products with a high quality, both technically and nutritionally, in order to fulfil the needs of our customers as well as consumer expectations. As to their technical quality our products comply with the agreed specifications. With regard to their nutritional quality we ensure that our fish and fish products are good sources of high-value proteins, important minerals, vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids.

Sustainability Mowi and all its processing facilities highly value the efficient production of safe, healthy and tasty food. This is needed to be able to feed the ever increasing population around the globe while at the same time taking care not to deplete the planet’s natural resources, which are of the utmost importance for the survival of fauna and flora, as well as mankind.

According to research done by the Food & Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) the world’s population will increase to close to 10 million people by 2050. This growth will be accompanied by an increase of the standard of living which will enable more people to eat more protein-rich food such as meat, eggs, milk and fish. These combined developments are expected to result in doubling the worldwide demand for food by 2050. The most important challenge facing global food production is the limited availability of natural resources, such as production areas, fresh water and energy. At the same time the emission of greenhouse gasses will also have to be reduced.

Leading the Blue Revolution

The best opportunity to fulfill the increasing demand for healthy and sustainable food lies in the oceans. 70% of the globe is covered by water, but only 2% of the worldwide food supply comes from the oceans.

Yet we have to take into account that these resources are not limitless. If we want to make sure that future generations will also be able to enjoy delicious fish we need to invest in sustainable fisheries and aquaculture:

That is why Leading the Blue Revolution is Mowi's vision.

Fish is one of the most efficient animal protein sources: It takes much less feed to produce 1kg of edible fish than is needed to produce the same quantity of meat. The carbon footprint of fish is considerably smaller than that of meat.

Environmental Responsibility:

Sustainable Fisheries and Responsible Aquaculture Mowi minimalizes the environmental impact of its activities and operates in harmony with the environment, by taking care not to deplete natural resources and not to use any materials or substances that may cause a lasting impact.

By far the largest part of the fish species that are processed by Mowi processing facilities are from MSC certified sustainable fisheries or from ASC certified responsible aquaculture. Mowi offers a large number of products which have been certified according to independent standards for responsible aquaculture and sustainable fisheries, such as ASC and MSC.

Next to the ASC certified salmon from Mowi's own salmon farms we can offer top-quality sustainable fish products from our worldwide sourcing network.

•MSC – The Marine Stewardship Council - is an independent ecolabel which ensures that the fish has been caught sustainably. MSC’s objective is to protect oceans and safeguard seafood supplies for this and future generations.

•ASC – The Aquaculture Stewardship Council – is an independent label for responsibly farmed fish, shellfish and crustaceans. Fish with the ASC label comes from farms that limit their impact on water and the environment, take good care of their employees and take the interests of the local communities into account.

Next to the ASC certified salmon from Mowi's own salmon farms we can offer top-quality sustainable fish products from our worldwide sourcing network.

To ensure and further improve the sustainability of our sourcing we developed several sustainability programs in cooperation with our suppliers. These start with an internal assessment by our procurement department on the basis of a supplier manual and may be followed by an external assessment on the basis of third-party scientific research.

When selecting and choosing products our focus is on sustainable fishery and aquaculture methods and on safeguarding biodiversity. To achieve this, we actively cooperate with a network of suppliers, customers, researchers and universities at home and abroad. This way we aim to make an active contribution to new environmentally and socially sustainable developments.

Mowi has ‘chain-of-custody’ certificates for ASC, GLOBALG.A.P. and MSC, which ensure that the products we sell with one of these labels are really coming from certified responsible farms or certified sustainable fisheries.

Animal Health and Welfare

Good health management and husbandry practices are at the basis of fish welfare. We make sure that the living conditions of our fish are in accordance with their biological needs and that the chances of stress, aggression and wounds are minimalized. We continuously monitor the health status of our fish and act immediately in case this is compromised.
