PRIVATE CERTIFICATION PROTOCOL FISH FROM GREECE
It’s the prerogative of pioneers to launch innovative initiatives such as the FISH FROM GREECE brand introduced by the Hellenic Aquaculture Producers Association. Now, HAPO has taken another bold step in developing the Private Certification Protocol FISH FROM GREECE, in partnership with TÜV Austria Hellas Inspection and Certification Organization. Owned by HAPO, its purpose is to ensure the superior quality of fresh Greek aquaculture fish, exemplify responsible practices and reinforce the position of Greek aquaculture producers in both local and international markets.
As we evolve in the global market, it is of capital importance that we retain our collective standards that ensure the superior quality of fresh Greek aquaculture fish that consumers, the world over, have come to trust.
In addition to the annual inspections that attest to the protocol’s validity, another key feature of this certification are the unannounced product controls in the marketplace and the audits, by independent certification bodies, that ensure compliance with the 6 pillars that our Certification Protocol is based on:
Environmental Management (Farming Site and Fish Management)
Quality Characteristics of Farmed Fish
Social Responsibility in Fish Farming
Everything HAPO does, including the development of our Private Certification Protocol, is aimed at reinforcing your trust and loyalty to the top-quality, deliciously healthy, Greek aquaculture fish labelled FISH FROM GREECE.
