Seafood Giant Increases Compliance Coverage to Meet Global Regulation

Cooke Aquaculture, the leader in the global seafood industry, was established in 1985. 

Over the years, the company expanded its facilities, product lines, and distribution networks to become fully-integrated within its aquaculture operations. With acquisitions, Cooke has further expanded its seafood assets into wild fishery.

Centralizing Audit Management Across All Active Sites

To meet rapid organizational growth while operating in the most remote parts of the world, a digital, mobile and centralized system was needed. Cooke Aquaculture needed to overcome the limitations of their paper-based auditing techniques and take part in a digital transformation. Improving and streamlining the overall workflow of their Non-Conformance and CAPA management systems was a top priority for the organization.

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Lacking a Scalable, Mobile Approach to Audit Management

Paper-Based Systems

Improved productivity was not possible with paper-based audits or manual CAPA & Non-Conformance management. Their manual systems were tedious, cumbersome, time-consuming and lacked real-time visibility of quality issues.

Lacking Visibility into Third-Party Compliance

Tracking and management of supplier compliance – before implementation, excel was used to spot recurring issues, Hindering their ability to visualize real-time supplier risk status across their supply chain.

Multi-Site Management

Cooke’s expansion had placed increasing demands on the quality team to produce the same level of value across their sites.

Slow & Limited Reporting Capabilities

As Cooke was using excel spreadsheets to monitor performance, when data was uploaded it was usually out of date, slowing the ability to react in real-time to organizational events.
