Assuring Authentic Seafood With Digital Certificates: Progressive Grocer
Enhanced traceability can show how, when, and who produced seafood.

“Among the latest technology developments are digital certificates, which can help combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing and seafood fraud. Digital certificates can verify data at each step of the supply chain to ensure that a food product meets certain required rules. For instance, the certificates can be used to ensure that fish came from a legal vessel, that the harvest date is accurate and that the species is correct. If an item meets the stated rules, the certificate remains with the product. However, if the weight or species or harvester — or any other criteria — aren’t met, according to the requirements, the certificate is removed.”
