Scottish salmon farmer Loch Duart will start fingerprinting its farmed salmon in partnership with food-origin firm Oritain in 2018 as innovative way to recognise its provenance. It invented a pioneering fingerprint technology to fight food fraudsters, who use company’s name to sell lower-quality salmon in the UK and abroad. The innovative technology enables firms to verify the origin of fish farms at any stage of the supply chain, which leads to a better traceability and authentication of food.
