Super Seafood Industry Kit

Posted · Add Comment

The Seafood CRC is pleased to introduce the Super Seafood Industry Kit which “translates” the results of a major CRC communal project. 

The kit provides seafood producers, processors and retailers with the most up to date analysis of the nutritional value of Australian seafood. 

The kit has been developed from the very detailed study – “Australian seafood compositional profiles” (Project 2008/905) undertaken by the South Australian Research and Development Institute which was led by Dr David Padula and Dr Cath McLeod.  The kit is exclusive to CRC Participants.

This is the first major update of seafood nutritional information in more than ten years.  This new information can be used now to support marketing claims based on nutrition and to prepare nutrition information panels required on seafood products.

What is in the Super Seafood Industry Kit?

You will find a suite of downloadable resources for 23 Australian seafood species in pdf and  jpeg on the member’s only section of the Seafood CRC website.  CRC Participants will get exclusive use of the material for a period of three months. 

 The resources contained in the kit for each species include:

•           Fact sheets that outline how to use the information provided.

•           Nutrition information panels.

•           Daily intake guide images (which can only be used if companies sign the Australian Food and Grocery Council Code of Practice for Labelling and Promotion – refer

•           Health claims that can be made, including marketing images.

•           Other supporting documentation (industry guidelines)
