Sykes CEO grateful for retail strength of Klaas Puul in coronavirus foodservice crash….plus a dollop of business continuity to level the ship..

Being part of the team with Lyons Seafoods that obtained first ever business continuity in a UK food company – BS25999 (Now ISO 22301 & 22313) – we did play many what/if scenarios. Including pandemics, market and supply chain ruptures. 300+ business disruption plans. 2008

Coronavirus is turning us all into seafood Millennials…nicely written opinion piece…

MissingĀ at the top of the list and covering all generations regardless.

Food safety.

Frozen is a safety step and nowadays is the best technology available. That and washing hand SOP’s developed as past of the NASA HACCP protocols.

Sorry but fresh is just not where the last mile is gonna work for seafood – shrimp anyway. Maybe OK for salmon guys but hard to see how fresh fits in with food safety.

One wants convenience, this means deheading and peeling – fresh is not advisable thence. Too much handling. Freezing good quality step.

Also convenience may mean use of chemicals. Try to find a peeled shrimp that does not have an e-number in it.

Fresh anyway is never as good as live but we now know what wet markets entail and frozen technology is a best primary step.

Where does hunting for fish as seafood sit? Farmed is an option on the path to help against industrial resource exoitation….but probably low on list and under catch-all sustainability.

Farmed frozen clean deck using domesticated species best option.
