Certification

Third-party certification is an important aspect of being accountable to the consumer. It means independent experts have audited and certified that farms are operating to best practice standards.

Grieg Seafood has been awarded the Best Aquaculture Practices certification by the Global Aquaculture Alliance, the leading standards-setting organization for aquaculture seafood. The Best Aquaculture Practices standards are developed by a committee of diverse stakeholders including leading progressive environmental organizations. The review process involved an audit of Grieg’s social responsibility, food safety, animal welfare and traceability processes and systems, as well as auditsĀ at its farms. Best Aquaculture Practices certification standards for salmon farms incorporate ongoing guidelines and quantitative criteria for veterinary care, nets, and feed content and feed ratios.
