The Global Seafood Alliance (GSA) has announced that Hiddenfjord has become the first company in the Faroe Islands to attain Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) four-star certification.

The salmon hatchery Futaklettur was the last to achieve certification at the end of February, after which the whole BAP process was completed. Now, the company has the maximum BAP star designation and uses the four-star logo.

Regarding this achievement, Óli Hansen, sales director at Hiddenfjord said: "Attaining our fourth star is not merely an accomplishment but a testament to our relentless pursuit of premium quality and sustainability. We look forward to sharing its implications with our customers, ensuring they benefit from our commitment to sustainable salmon farming."

In addition, Iain Shone, director of market development at GSA commented: "Hiddenfjord committed to four-star from the outset and put a huge amount of work into this project and I know the whole team is proud of their achievement."
