Global Trust is pleased to announce that it expects to deliver certification services for the Aquaculture Stewardship Councils (ASC) Standard as soon as accreditation has been achieved. Global Trust is the leader in aquaculture certification and the addition of the ASC standard to the range of Sustainable Aquaculture certification standards that it already delivers will significantly add value for existing and new client organizations.
“A key value in being able to deliver ASC along with the other Aquaculture standards that we deliver (including Global GAP, GAA, Eco-label and Organic), is that we can offer multi-standard certification using our unique integrated standards framework which reduces audit time and maximises value for our clients,” commented Global Trust CEO Peter Marshall.
Global Trust’s Aquaculture team have a wealth of experience in Feed, Crustacean, Bi-Valve and Finfish Aquaculture systems and industry best practices and are welcoming the opportunity to deliver a world-class standard such as the ASC Standard.
New and existing clients who become certified to the ASC standard will benefit from global recognition of their commitment to sustainability and a competitive edge by servicing the demand for certified sustainably farmed seafood.
The ASC Standard will also include a chain of custody component and Global Trust will also certify organizations to this standard.
The Aquaculture Stewardship Council was set up by the World Wildlife Fund and the Dutch Sustainable Trade Initiative as to act as an independent, not-for-profit organization to manage global standards for responsible aquaculture.
The ASC Standard is expected to be fully Accredited by mid 2012.
