I recently started working for a seafood wholesale distributor (95% is received and shipped), but they also process (fillet) a small percentage of product (5%, received, process and packaged, then shipped). 

my question is what SQF code/program would we have to pursue? 


Thank you.

SQF Food Safety Code for Manufacturing, Edition 8 - Food Sector Category 9 for Seafood and Modules 2 & 11


SQF Food Safety Code for Storage and Distribution, Edition 8, Food Sector Category 26 - Modules 2 & 16 -- 


Thus your modules are 2 of course and 11 & 16


We have several clients like your operation and this is what it most times works out too - if you repack anything that you distribute  - such as bringing in #10 tins of shucked oysters and then repack into smaller plastic pints for instance, there will be another FSC and possibly another module.
