Feed quality and producer’s certifications are very important in aquaculture. We conduct robust analyses of all approved raw materials – at delivery, throughout the formulation process, and up to the point of feed delivery.
Our company complies with the latest Belgian and European legislations and is strictly controlled by the Belgian Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain (FAVV-AFSCA). Furthermore, we use several standards from the feed sector to enhance feed quality and safety. The importance of feed safety is also highlighted by the sterilization of certain ranges of our products.
All raw materials and finished products are subject to strict quality controls. Raw materials are selected from approved suppliers and with attention to sustainability. We apply the HACCP principles and have a full traceability system to trace every raw material and finished product up to the end user.
To ensure complete microbiological feed safety and vibrio-free products, gamma-irradiation is applied to our feeds Caviar, Oliow3, Red Pepper, Royal Caviar, Vitellus and w3Algae. The technology is mainly used in the medical and pharmaceutical sector. Sterilization by gamma-irradiation is safe, reliable, highly effective and guarantees a complete biosecurity.
Bern Aqua NV is certified under (EC) 834/2007 and (EC) R889/2008 regulations. We are producing fish and shrimp feed suitable for use in organic aquaculture.
