BIM’s quality standard to enter GSSI benchmark assessment
Bord Iascaigh Mhara’s (BIM) quality standard for Irish aquaculture production will enter the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative (GSSI) benchmark process.
BIM’s Certified Quality Aquaculture (CQA) supports the production of premium farmed seafood through a focus on quality, organic and eco labelling.
BIM recently hosted the Global Aquaculture Alliance’s annual Global Outlook for Aquaculture Leadership (GOAL) conference in Dublin. Speaking at the event, CEO, Jim O’Toole, said: BIM is delighted to be the host of this year’s Global Outlook for Aquaculture Leadership Conference which provides a fantastic environment in which those in industry to exchange knowledge for the betterment of the sector.”
The GSSI benchmark is based on United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (UN FAO) guidelines for the ecolabelling of fish and fishery products. GSSI will give the BIM CQA standard internationally recognised accreditation.
BIM’s initial CQA standard programme was launched in October 2001. As of September 2017, there are 36 certified sites to the scheme.
