Did You Know?

Provenance and specifications documentation are supported order by order?

As provenance and certifications become more important to buyers, it is imperative that the supporting documentation can be made available down to the individual order/trade level. The system supports Fish CV’s, certification documentation and detailed product specifications to ensure that you have all the required documentation and can evidence these materials for counterparty auditing, internal reporting and third-party auditing – all instantly available within your organisation.


Q. I have specific provenance and quality levels – can you help?

A. The platform creates a 1 to 1 transactional relationship, and you therefore know exactly who you are trading with. Buyers can define a huge range of specifications on the system from quality levels e.g. premium / grade 1 / Industrials, and certifications where the system supports any number of definitions including ASC, MSC, G-GAP, Kosher, BAP, BRC etc to ensure that you can clearly define your own very specific purchasing needs, and the evidential documentation to support this.
