Fairtrade USA Chain-of-Custody (CoC)

In 2014, the first capture fisheries in Maluku was certified Fair Trade, with MDPI as the implementing partner. Since then, the Supply Chain Department, in collaboration with Fairtrade department, has worked on developing a traceability standard operational procedure to make sure that Fair Trade-labeled product are caught by registered Fair Trade fishermen. At the same time, it ensures that the correct amount of Premium Fund is paid to the Fisher Association. In making the standard, we refer to Fair Trade USA Compliance Criteria for the Capture Fisheries Standard FTUSA_CFS_CC_1.0v1_EN_121914
