In guaranteeing and certifying that we carry out our activities ethically, responsibly and with the smallest possible environmental impact, we pursue a policy of continuous improvement. As a result, we have obtained an MSC Sustainable Fishing Certificate for the South African fishing grounds, which is based on compliance with the MSC environmental standards.
MSC Chain of Custody certificate
We have also been awarded the MSC CoC,, which complies with the MSC standard for the chain of custody and traceability of fish products.
This certificate ensures that only products originating from certified fisheries can carry the blue MSC, which tells buyers and consumers that the fish or shellfish they are purchasing can be traced to a fishery that complies with the MSC environmental standard for sustainable fishing.
IFS BROKER Certificate
We also possess the IFS BROKER certificate, which guarantees that service providers each implement the correct measures and operate in accordance with the quality and safety requirements pertaining to the respective products. Brokers, agents and importers must also ensure their service providers comply with legal and contractual requirements.
ASC standards help protect communities and the environment, and ensure the ongoing viability of the aquaculture industry.
We take great care in ensuring that our fishery products are cultivated in line with legal requirements and the ASC certificate. Our customers and consumers can be absolutely safe in the knowledge that our products are the result of well-managed farming.
We engage in a range of CSR activities and sports and food-related sponsorship deals that project key ethical and social values, helping to tackle issues of concern to society.
