Label Rouge Scottish Farmed Salmon (LR)
Membership details for Label Rouge Scottish Farmed Salmon Product Certification Scheme.
Acoura Marine has been able to offer assurance to Label Rouge standards for almost 20 years now and remains the only non-French certification body able to do so.
Widely considered one of the most prestigious food standard labels, Acoura is accredited by the French National Commission for Labels and Certification to provide assessments for Label Rouge Scottish Farmed Salmon and Label Rouge Scottish Farmed Salmon Portions.
Being assured to Label Rouge standards by Acoura Marine brings with it a number of different benefits.
Benefits can include:
- Allows your salmon to carry the Label Rouge label
- Assures customers that your produce is of an extremely high standard
- Help differentiate yourself from competitors
- Increases access to the French market
- Where possible Acoura will try to combine audits
- Year round technical support from the Acoura Aquaculture team
Assured Label Rouge Scottish Farmed Salmon goes through an extremely stringent assessment process. Each audit checks whether the salmon has been reared in accordance with best practice and with respect for fish welfare, the environment and sustainability. Traceability (with gill tags), feed composition, percentage of lipid in the flesh and geographic location are also examined by the auditor.
Further to this, twice each year accredited independent laboratories in France carry out strict consumer taste tests comparing Label Rouge salmon with non-label standard farmed salmon from across the globe.
