Today’s seafood buyers and consumers demand to know where their food comes from, how it is obtained and what has happened to it prior to purchase. However good the practices are in the seafood industry, confidence must be instilled to a wider public through a trustworthy and understandable mechanism – certification is widely accepted as the appropriate mechanism.
Since 1998, Global Trust has delivered ISO accredited certification for a variety of seafood programs now spanning across 23 countries and it remains independent of these sometimes competitive programs. The programs now include Certified Quality Salmon, Trout and Mussels, GAA Best Aquaculture Practice (BAP), Organic Aquaculture, Seafood Trust Eco-Standard, Label Rouge, GlobalGAP, MSC Sustainable Fisheries, FAO Responsible Fishery Management, IFFO Responsible Supply, as well as the supply chain standards of chain of custody and BRC, etc.
Global Trust has also been engaging with the new standards in development, e.g., WWF dialogues, and will seek to deliver certification against emerging standards when and if requested. Global Trust is both ISO and ISEAL-based (ASI) accredited as independent and competent.
Global Trust Certification offers the most comprehensive range of recognised and accredited certifications and standards services to international seafood businesses. We have services that can be tailored to suit existing or emerging markets and needs.
Global Trust is NOT a standards owner nor is the Global Trust logo a specific eco-label, we are an ISO Accredited independent Certification body delivering certification to specific standards. Global Trust's certifications are used to communicate specifics such as Food Safety, Organic, Superior Quality, Eco and Responsible Management.
Global Trust does assist many standards owners with accreditation and certification criteria for standards and also acts as Certification Managers for a number of national and international programs.
Given its expertise in Seafood and Certification Standards, Global Trust is well positioned to assist seafood buyers with Responsible Sourcing Strategies based on available standards.
