We own our own ships and factories , so we have full control over the quality of retrieval for further processing.


We follow HACCP principles and "Regulation on Feed Products" to ensure that the products fulfill requirements regarding contaminants. Scanbio has its own well equipped laboratory where we analyze the physical - chemical and microbiological parameters. Our own laboratory controls and ensures quality parameters from raw material through production to finished product. In addition we use externally accredited laboratories for providing data for product certificates and control.  

Scanbio ships are part of the quality assurance system . They have electronic integration with software for management of quality assurance for the exchange of commodity analysis in real time, as well as tracking information.
