Corporate social responsibility
Corporate social responsibility is certainly one of the principles that the Mardešić company is based on. Throughout the entire history of the business, there has always been a genuine partnership between the company and the community. The Mardešić factory organises employee training courses regularly and cares about employee satisfaction in the workplace, and in accordance with its economic growth, it improves the quality of life of the wider community of Dugi Otok through donations and grants for various projects.
The Mardešić d.o.o. company strives to meet the strictest safety criteria when it comes to factors that affect the environment. Each production process is approached in accordance with environmental legislation. Doing business on the island is quite specific due to the limited resources, however, special attention is dedicated to water conservation and waste reduction. For waste recycling, selective waste disposal containers are used, while authorised companies oversee the collection of waste.
In the Mardešić company’s business activity, the utmost attention is paid to the freshness and the origin of the fish used for production, as well as to the quality and health safety of the finished products. The products are manufactured according to recipes and specifications that are regularly revised. Within the factory, a special organisational unit in charge of quality control has been set up within which there is a laboratory with equipment for monitoring all the critical manufacturing points in accordance with the HACCP system and quality systems; starting with the admission of the fish, then going through the entire production cycle and finally the shipment of the finished product.
Mardešić d.o.o. products hold the HACCP certificate, the IFS certificate, and the BIO certificate for the line of products of organic origin.
