Statement from Vice President Metro Group on Food Safety and Sustainability

John Carter, Vice President Metro Group: Global Director Quality Assurance at Metro Cash and Carry, Germany, said:

"For the Metro Group, food safety is a base supplier requirement and that also applies to our fish suppliers. Whilst we welcome and promote the application of sustainability standards and labels, food safety assurance should not be neglected, particularly on farm level. Consequently, we call on all providers of certification systems for aquaculture to develop effective solutions that cost-efficiently and effectively combine food safety and sustainability.

For the German market, we are striving to establish a GFSI benchmarked aquaculture certificate, such as GLOBALG.A.P., as a basic requirement for food safety.”
