In the development of its food safety and sustainability policies, Pescanova Group has selected GLOBALG.A.P. as a reference to certify all its aquaculture operations in the Group, and Bureau Veritas as third-party auditor to carry out all the audit inspections.

Camanica is Pescanova’s second shrimp-producing company, after Promarisco in Ecuador, to achieve GLOBALG.A.P. Certification. In the near future, the group companies NovaHonduras and NovaGuatemala will be joining them, soon making 100 percent of Pescanova’s vannamei shrimp production GLOBALG.A.P. certified. Insuiña and Acuinova, the two turbot-producing companies also have GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture Certification.

Underlining the benefits of building its business on GLOBALG.A.P., the company said in a press release, “GLOBALG.A.P. Certification demonstrates to our customers and consumers that we are a responsible company committed to the environmental and social impact of our operations, as well as to the safety of the products we produce and deliver to the markets . We understand that GLOBALG.A.P. is a reference with a high level of requirements, a very good governance system, and the highest technical levels. As a result, we benefit from the very good international recognition among producers, suppliers, buyers, retailers and consumers.”

Camanica fully integrates GLOBALG.A.P. in its shrimp value chain, from its breeding centers to the laboratories where the larvae are produced to the growing farms. The company currently employs around 1,400 people and its main export destinations are the European and U.S. markets.

The GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture Standard covers the entire production chain, from broodstock, seedlings and feed suppliers to farming, harvesting and processing. It serves as a practical manual for any aquaculture producer, ensuring food safety, minimal environmental impact and compliance with animal welfare and worker health and safety requirements.
