BCS Obtains Certification to Export Seafood to the EU

September 21, 2023

Bellingham Cold Storage (BCS) proudly announces that earlier this Summer, our latest facility, located in Burlington, WA, was added to the SANCO List to export seafood to the European Union. This certification is a testament to our commitment to food safety and quality.

“The European Union is the world’s largest importer of goods, with a total import value of $3.2 trillion in 2021. Adding our new location to the SANCO List is a testament to our commitment to supporting our customers as they provide high-quality seafood products worldwide.” José Roqués, Senior Vice President of Marketing

We continue to support our customers in their efforts to export their seafood items to these critical markets and provide a friendly BCS experience at all our locations. BCS is committed to providing our customers with the highest quality experience.

What does this certification mean for our customers?

This certification means our customers can be confident that BCS facilities meet the highest food safety and quality standards to handle their products. We have precise processes to ensure that our customer’s product is handled and processed safely, and we are constantly monitoring our procedures to ensure that they meet the highest standards.

What are the benefits of this certification for BCS?

The European Union is one of the largest seafood markets in the world, and this certification is a testament to our efforts to meet the stringent food safety requirements of this market. We were required to demonstrate that our facilities and procedures met the highest food safety standards, and we also had to undergo a strict audit by a third-party organization.
