OFS recently became the first crab processor to hold Marine Stewardship Council Chain of Custody certification for brown crab.

Chain of Custody number C-FCI-0072

The neighbouring Shetland brown crab fishery has recently become MSC certified.  As there are no certified processing facilites in Shetland, Orkney Fishermen's Society will this week begin weekly shipments of live crab from Shetland to be processed in the Stromness factory.  The co-operative is currently in discussion with a major UK retailer regarding the introduction of a Sheltand MSC certified range of crab products.
