Australian Seafood, It’s Safe
Australia’s comprehensive multi-tiered food safety system has enabled us to gain a well deserved reputation for producing safe food. It is something we are proud of and work hard to maintain.
The STAG has produced a series of videos to promote our excellent Seafood Safety systems and to educate the Asian supply chain about the measures we have in place to ensure that our seafood is as safe as possible when it leaves Australian shores. These videos are available in Mandarin, Cantonese and Japanese, as well as English. Please contact us to request a copy of the video file, it is a useful tool for training and to pass on to your customers and consumers in Asia.
