Whenever seafood is sold with the MSC ecolabel, every business in the supply chain must meet the MSC standard for seafood traceability and have a current 'MSC Chain of Custody' certificate to prove this.
In order for restaurants to get the MSC Ecolabel on their menus they must source MSC-certified sustainable seafood, get certified by an independent auditor, and apply for a MSC Ecolabel license.

Soil Association Certification Ltd is the UK’s largest organic certification body, responsible for certifying over 80 per cent of all organic products sold in the country. It has been operating since 1973 and awards organic certification to farms and businesses that meet its organic standards. Farmers, growers, food
processors, feed mills, retailers, cafes, storage facilities, and transport can apply for certification.
The association’s standards exceed the EU organic regulations minimum requirements in several areas, especially in relation to animal welfare, GM and the use of pesticides. The standards cover everything from barley to beef, chocolate to coffee and state what is allowed and not allowed in the production of organic food.
Certification is a three step process involving application, inspection, and certification. After certification, businesses will have a dedicated Certification officer who looks after all aspects of the licence after the inspection, such as adding new products or land.
