Our Global G.A.P. certification

Global G.A.P. is internationally recognized as the top quality and sustainability standard for Good Agricultural Practice (GAP).

The GLOBAL G.A.P. has been operating in aquaculture for several years as part of a global food certification system, developed and operated by Food PLUS GmbH in Germany.

This standard ensures that fish are grown responsibly in environmentally friendly conditions. It fully covers the entire production chain, from broodstock, breeding, fishing, fish processing and packaging. It consists of more than 200 prerequisites concerning food quality and safety, livestock welfare, worker safety, and care for the environment and the ecosystem.

The objectives of this quality standard are to establish best practices within an integrated evaluation system, in order to ensure cooperation with accredited certification bodies and GLOBALG.A.P. accredited auditors and inspectors, as well as ensure comparability and transparency across the supply chain, and reduce costs and time for suppliers and retailers.

Our IFS Food certification

BRC issue 7 is a Standard on Food Safety and Quality developed by the British Retailing Organization, which is nowadays a prerequisite for food companies wishing to export their products to overseas markets.

The IFS ver.6 standard is the result of collaboration of the members of the German HDE (Hauptver and des Deutschen Einzellandes) and the corresponding French Federation of Commerce and Industry (FCD), in order to create a common Safety and Food Quality Standard, called International Food Standard or IFS.

The BRC and IFS standards have been assessed and recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) committee. Furthermore, it is important to note that the aforementioned standards are applicable to the fish farms packaging units.
