+ How does DNI Group assure that it’s seafood is safe?

This helps us to ensure that the products that we receive are consistently processed, following certified HACCP plans and making sure that DNI specifications are strictly met.
+ Is raw fish safe to consume?
The key to food safety is time, temperature and sanitation. Foods, especially proteins, need to be processed under indicated temperatures within a limited amount of time in clean conditions to ensure safety. Sushi chefs in Japan undergo years of extremely strict training, not only in the art and presentation of sushi, but food safety as well. Sushi chefs even consider the warmth of their hands as a part of their preparation. With the mainstreaming of sushi in the U.S., not all sushi preparers undergo such training. However, DNI places a strong focus and top priority on its on-site quality control and core frozen sushi safe seafood products.
