Friend of the Sea Sustainable Certification for SeaSam Prawns

24 March 2014

SWEDEN - Swedish company, SeaSam Food AB, has successfully completed Friend of the Sea audit for greasy back shrimps, Indian white and giant tiger prawns.

Derived products can now display the international sustainability seal of approval.

SeaSam is equipped with a batch system which guarantees traceability from producer to customer. All catch zones and fishing vessels are well documented. A well-functioning database records all purchases and sales.

SeaSam is sourced in Indonesia. Prawns stocks are compliant with Friend of the Sea strict status requirements. Prawns are caught with selective trammel nets and artisanal fisheries.

“We are proud to have obtained the Friend of the Sea certification," said Petter Rönnqvist, CEO of SeaSam Food AS. “This is a recognition which highlights our efforts towards the preservation of the marine habitat.”
