During the Fluid Annual conference and Gala awards dinner, we won 2 awards and were highly commended in about 5 other categories. This means we received certificates and came 2nd or 3rd in that category.

The first award is the Post Brexit Excellence as we stood a chance with and the efforts we go to were recognised. The other award is the Supplier of the Year award; the big one everyone wants!

Both awards mean a testament to the way the Fluid account is looked after and the service we deliver; a real genuine team effort!

Congratulations to the complete UK team!

Following the first full audit in September 2019, the European print facility of midocean retains its A-score that was achieved in a follow-up audit last February.

During the full audit that needs to be repeated every two years, an independent auditor noted a consistent outcome. midocean is the first print facility in the industry where an amfori BSCI audit was conducted. With again an A-score, the company is able to retain the highest possible audit result!

amfori BSCI performs independent and recurring audits at our suppliers. In addition, we also ensure that our own production facility meets all local legal requirements in the field of working conditions. During the first week of September audit company Intertek Poland conducted a full amfori BSCI audit in our printing facility. During the audit no findings were reported and the auditor noted various best practices. This means that in some areas we do better than the law requires. Also with this great score, as a quality-conscious company, midocean keeps it focus on securing continuous quality improvements.

Following the reports of the NVWA, we will immediately stop the sale of food contact products containing plastic with bamboo and/or maize fibres. The reason for this measure has to do with the advice of a European research committee which has established that bamboo fibre should not be considered as a wood species but as a grass species. This means that bamboo falls out of the permitted additives list of Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 as "grass" is simply not mentioned.

It is currently being investigated whether "grasses" can still be added to the above-mentioned list.

The reason that bamboo and maize fibre is being investigated in combination with plastic is due to a risk assessment that potentially harmful amounts of melamine and formaldehyde from the cups could end up in food at higher temperatures. However, we have an active policy on the testing of these goods and in previous inspections by the NVWA we demonstrated that the "bamboo" articles marketed by midocean do not contain melamine and formaldehyde.

We would like to emphasise that the measure is the result of the above-mentioned advice and that our articles therefore do not pose a direct risk to public health.

At the European print facility, midocean is the first in the promotional industry to achieve the highest achievable audit score.

Ede- An independent auditor noted a significant improvement compared to the previous audit that took place in 2019. midocean is the only company in the industry to undergo an amfori BSCI audit. With an A-score, the company is also the first to achieve the highest possible audit result!


Safe working conditions

As a major player in the promotional industry, midocean takes its responsibility seriously. The entire midocean collection is produced according to European laws and regulations, all products are safe and tested with reports available directly on the midocean web site at item level. It is also vitally important that the people who produce and decorate the items can do so under safe conditions.

Independent, recurring audits

We prioritize the safety of all people involved in making our products. midocean is therefore a member of amfori BSCI: an initiative to improve working conditions worldwide. On behalf of midocean and by accredited audit companies, amfori BSCI performs independent and recurring audits at our suppliers. The findings of each audit are used to develop an improvement plan and the factory is given a set amount of time to implement these improvements.

Own print location achieves A-score amfori BSCI

In addition, we also ensure that our own production facility meets all local legal requirements in the field of working conditions. That is why amfori BSCI and SEDEX Smeta 4P audits are regularly performed at our print location in Ruda, Poland, in line with the required audit intervals. An audit provides a deeper insight into areas where continuous improvements can be made to the operational practises and facilities. As a quality concious organisation midocean on the 14th and 15th of January 2021 carried out a follow-up audit of both amfori BSCI and SEDEX Smeta 4P at our print facility. This audit resulted in a unique A-score achievement. The independent auditor noted a significant improvement compared to the previous audit. midocean demonstrates that it is able to improve its business processes in the field of working hours, environmental requirements and safety in a relatively short time. This benefits the organization, but above all contributes to a good, healthy and safe working environment for employees and the immediate environment of the location.

Hemp is one of the oldest and most eco-friendly textile fabrics. It is made from fibres of the fast growing cannabis plant that is naturally pest resistant and that can grow without the assistance of fertilizers and pesticides. This makes it a 100% organic crop and very environmentally friendly. Not only the production process of the hemp fibres is very sustainable, but also due to the fact that these organic fibres are 100% recyclable.
