A wave of taste

Thanks to the years-long collaboration with Food Bloggers with whom the company has a lively exchange of ideas and original recipes, L’Isola D’Oro opens its window on the world.  
Talking about Tonnotto, Aliciotte, Sgombrotto, Vongolotte and the fish preserves of the L’Isola D’Oro world through the dishes prepared by Food bloggers is much more than a culinary proposal: it is the passion that rises beyond the flavour and appearance of food.  
It is indeed a “wave of taste”! A friendly wave that does not sweep everything away, but simply transforms and favours the infinite possibilities of turning the wide range of L’Isola D’Oro’s products into recipes.
The L’Isola D’Oro world is an ecosystem where information, desires and needs come together; where functional and appetising specialties, nourishing and healthy products are developed; a world that can satisfy the growing need for convenience that people and communities have been expressing as well as the technical and logistical requirements of large retail. 
L’Isola D’Oro is indeed a fish preserve company, but also an antenna tuned in the universe of food. All our products can be used straight from the packs, the way they are without the need to be cooked, or as top quality ingredients for salads, sauces, dressings, pizza toppings and paninis, stuffings, flavour enhancers, homogenized products, smoothies, etc. They are sources of proteins, omega 3, mineral salts and vitamins, delivered in an easy and appetising way. A healthy habit, a wave of taste with sprays of contemporary energy.
A delicious habit that rewards your health, a wave of taste with sprays of contemporary energy.

BRC

The BRC standard (Technical Standard and Protocol for Companies Supplying Retailers Branded Food Products) was developed by the British Retail Consortium that represents the major British retailers (accounting for 90% of the retail market in the United Kingdom and 50% of the private label market).
In 1998 BRC issued a standard for companies that supply food products bearing third-party brands. It is a model recognised in the UK that is growing rapidly all over Europe: its current version has been drawn up by the most important British retailers. The BRC standard has been developed to make sure that the branded products are manufactured according to well defined quality standards, to assist wholesalers and Large Retailers in complying with the legal obligations, and to ensure maximum protection for the customers. The standard has been designed to audit processing methods and hygiene and safety criteria of suppliers against shared standards.

MSC

The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is an international non-profit organisation founded in 1997 by Unilever and WWF as a response to the remarkable reduction of the world’s fish stocks. Independent since 1999, it continues operating with the purpose of improving the responsible management of fish sources ensuring the sustainability of the world’s fish stocks and preservation of the entire marine ecosystem.
An MSC certification proves that the fishing area from which the product comes is managed according to sustainable and advanced management programmes.
BENEFITS: an independent third party checks the sustainability of the whole marine ecosystem upon request from a part of the market and the public opinion; differentiation of the products offered in an increasingly more competitive market; evidence of a good management of resources to the community and stakeholders.
SUSTAINABILITY PRINCIPLES: protection of fish stocks; environmental sea impact; effective management system

IFS

IFS is an operational tool to qualify suppliers according to requirements of quality, safety and compliance with food standards. Whilst the BRC standard is a document designed by British large retailers, IFS is an equivalent tool issued by the major German and French retailers with the purpose of checking the processing methods, the hygiene and safety standards of suppliers. The pillars of the two standards are similar because they draw inspiration from the same principle, namely the quality system, the HACCP management, the respect of food regulations, the management of staff, the management of product/process, the management of the work environment, the respect of GMPs (good manufacturing practices) and of the production site. IFS, designed as a score check list, establishes “KO” requirements that are a prerequisite for certification and a compliance with score with a mandatory minimum for certification.

FRIENS OF the SEA

The Friends of the Sea project is the result of the success and tangible results previously achieved by Dolphin-Safe (fishing for tuna minimizing dolphin fatalities, 98% reduction of dolphin mortality since the beginning of certification) of the Earth Island Institute (international non-profit NGO based in San Francisco) whose mission is to promote sustainable fishing and aquaculture products. Following the FAO guidelines, Friends of the Sea has defined very selective certification criteria. One of the assessment criteria aims at keeping “accidental catches” under control, i.e. the catching of species not destined for production, thus killed needlessly. To be Friends of the Sea the percentage of bycatches has to be below 8%, while it is even up to 90% in uncontrolled fishing.
