Det Norske Veritas
In 2000, Stella Polaris was the first prawn factory in the world to be certified by the British Retail Consortium standard for food production. BRC is perhaps the most demanding quality standard available for food production. Stella Polaris undergoes annual quality inspections from Det Norske Veritas (DNV) and currently has an AA rating from BRC.
Stiftelsen Det Norske Veritas is a free-standing, autonomous and independent foundation whose purpose is to safeguard life, property and the environment. This purpose is achieved through its ownership of companies – of which the most important is the DNV GL group, a classification, certification and technical assurance and advisory company.
