Global Seafood Alliance (GSA) announced that Skretting became the first feed producer in Norway to obtain Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification.
The Norwegian aquaculture feed company, which produces feed for fish and shrimp, achieves the requirements of the BAP. Among the most stringent is the sourcing of marine and terrestrial ingredients for all aquaculture feeds produced in the factory.
BAP is a global certification program for aquaculture, offering the most comprehensive standards in the industry. These standards encompass various aspects such as environmental and social responsibility, food safety, animal health and welfare, and traceability.
Nina Flem, Skretting's Quality Manager, explained that fish farms can now be supplied by a certified factory in Norway. "The farms will also be able to tell their customers that their feed is responsible", she said. "Personally, I am proud and happy about the BAP certificate. I want to thank my colleagues for a well-executed and thorough audit so we can also deliver BAP-certified aquafeeds from Norway."
Skretting is a Norwegian company leading in providing sustainable nutritional solutions to the aquaculture industry. It has production facilities located on five continents and offers high-quality feed for different species through life from hatching to harvest. Moreover, Nutreco is the parent company of Skretting.
