PSQR is excited to announce that we have joined seafood companies from across the globe as an endorser and adopter of the Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability (GDST) Normative Standards. Not unlike our adoption of GS1‘s EPCIS standards, we see our alignment with GDST as a critical enabler of interoperability across complex global seafood supply chains.
What is Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability?

Our utmost goal is to contribute and add to the value of the seafood supply chain, making it more:
