GLOBALG.A.P.: Largest On-Farm Responsible Aquaculture Program Reaches out to Consumers

GLOBALG.A.P. has presented a new QR code for Aquaculture at the European Seefood Exposition in Brussels, Belgium.
April 25, 2012 - PRLog -- With more than 2 million tons of certified seafood from aquaculture farms, the GLOBALG.A.P. program offers more products from certified farms than all other aquaculture labels combined. This has quadrupled since 2010 and now covers more species then any other major program. Salmonids (including rainbow trout), shrimp, tilapia and pangasius, barramundi, pike-perch, sea bass and sea bream are all included, with molluscs soon to come.

To meet growing seafood buyers’ demands, GLOBALG.A.P. has developed a new branded traceability logo. An integrated QR code will lead to the GLOBALG.A.P. website , where consumers will find information on responsible aquaculture practices including criteria for legal compliance, food safety, animal and workers’ welfare, and environmental and ecological care. All of these are validated during the annual GLOBALG.A.P. on-farm certification process.

Baicy Terbrüggen, Sustainability and Environment, Corporate Quality Management - METRO AG and Vice-Chairwoman of the GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture Technical Committee explains:

The QR-Code is an effective way to give our customers immediate information and thus transparency on products available in our stores.”
