Gain Confidence Through Seafood Product Evaluation and Testing

Our science-based third-party services include:

  • Raw material inspection: At any point in the supply chain—from immediately after catch or removal from farms, to production and storage, to retail verification—we can ensure all raw materials comply with your specifications to help you identify quality issues and improve product marketability.
  • Container loading inspection: We provide oversight and verification of container shipments to ensure your product is loaded according to your exact specifications. We inspect the sanitation of the shipping container and check the temperature of the product before and during loading and of the container before loading. Finally, we verify the seal once the container is closed.

  • Livestream monitoring: We can help you improve efficiency with real-time, two-way communication via our EyeSucceed smartglass livestreaming for inspections, training and demonstrations.
  • On-site physical evaluation: On-site product evaluation assures product is produced to specification and meets quality standards before shipping.
  • Sampling and testing using independent laboratories: NSF contracts with ISO/IEC 17025 accredited labs globally, collects and ships samples as needed for microbial, chemical, antibiotic residual and DNA speciation testing to client specifications.
