Nordic Halibut AS has achieved a major goal of offering sustainable superfood by receiving certification from the Global G.A.P. Aquaculture Standard. The certification covers every stage of production, from breeding to farming and harvesting, and was awarded after a thorough audit by Kolos Aqua.
CEO Edvard Henden said, “We are very pleased to have obtained this certification. It shows our dedication to sustainable halibut farming and ensures that our production meets all international requirements for food safety, sustainability, and welfare for both fish and employees throughout the value chain.”
The audit verified that Nordic Halibut meets strict standards for food safety, environmental sustainability, animal health and welfare, worker well-being, legal compliance, traceability, and more.
Nordic Halibut also went through the Global G.A.P. Risk Assessment on Social Practice (GRASP) as part of the certification process, which assesses social risks in primary production and increases transparency for supply chain partners.
