Multiexport Spearheads GLOBALG.A.P. Certification15 November 2012
CHILE - Chile has seen a steady rise in GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture implementation and certifications in 2012. With more than 10 GLOBALG.A.P. certified producers, Chile now delivers more than a quarter of a million tons of GLOBALG.A.P. certified farmed seafood.
Multiexport Foods, one of the leading aquaculture producers in Chile, has become the first farmed salmon producer and exporter in the world to be certified against the new version 4.0 of the GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture Standard.
The company exports internationally to all the major markets including Japan, USA, Central Europe and Russia, as well as to the emerging markets of China, Korea, Southeast Asia and Latin America. Consumers in more than 30 countries around the world enjoy the high quality farmed salmon produced in its modern fish farming facilities and recirculation farms.
Multiexport Foods has implemented several measures and strategies at every stage of the production and processing chain to ensure its products are of the highest quality and safety. Achieving the new Version 4 of the GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture Scope certification is significant evidence of the company’s commitment to practicing responsible aquaculture and complying with the highest standards in farmed salmon production and processing.
Multiexport Foods is pioneering salmon farm eco-standard certification in Chile, raising the standard on farmed salmon quality and safety not only for producers on a national level but also for one of the fastest growing food production sectors in the world.
“We are very proud of this achievement and it is a testimonial to the commitment we have as an organization to practice Responsible Aquaculture. Our industry and our company are part of the solution to feed the world today and tomorrow in a sustainable way,” says Andres Lyon, CEO of Multiexport Foods.
