Where does my fish come from? (first Prototype)
You have a right to care about where your fish comes from, and that is why we’re providing full tracability from sea to fork of all ICE-CO products. It’s very important to us to recognize that each fish has its very own story – find out the one behind yours…
Ice-co's Atlantic Cod Fillet
Atlantic cod is a mild white fish with a tender texture. A popular choice that is low in fat and very versatile.
Icelandic cod tends to be large, sweet and, very flaky. We bring in the best from Icelandic boats and all of our seafood is processed locally immediately upon landing. Our cod has a sweet and mild flavor because they feed mostly on shellfish, crustaceans, and smaller fish. More than just a popular, great tasting fish, cod has been the backbone of our fishing communities for generations.

+ How does it work?
ICE-CO is working with a internet of things (IoT) company to bring the traceability story behind all its products to consumers.
Every product gets their own digital ID (GS1 Digital Link) to ensure that everything is tracked in the cloud from the fishing-method to the supply chain.
+ What is GS1?
GS1 is a organization that provides global standards for business communication. The best known of these is the barcode found on almost any product.
The GS1 Digital Link standad upgrades barcodes to:
1) be scannable out-of-the-box by consumer phones;
2) be seamlessly connected to the Web by embedding Web addresses instead of just numbers;
3) ensures there is one standard barcode to address any application vs. a proliferation of barcodes for different applications.
