Don’t Miss ASC’s Panel presentation at Seafood Expo Global

April 12, 2024

Aquaculture Stewardship Council is inviting all attendees at the Seafood Expo in Barcelona to join them on 24 April at their unmissable free panel presentation about responsibly produced aquafeed.

With the theme “Feed Responsibly: Why Responsible Aquaculture Needs Responsible Feed,” key industry players will share how they are adopting the ASC Feed Standard to drive transparency, social and environmental improvements in feed supply chains.

The expert panel includes Skretting’s Global Sustainability Manager, Jorge Diaz, Thai Union’s Chief Sustainability Officer, Adam Brennan and New England Seafood’s Head of Sustainability, Ruth Hoban.

ASC’s Feed Standard Senior Coordinator Alexandra Warrington will also share her insights with the panel which will be moderated by ASC’s Global Director for Programme Development, Esther Luiten.

This valuable discussion should be in the diary of anyone interested in responsible feed production, and Expo attendees can register for free here.

The ASC Feed Standard is generating a wave of positive change in feed production and continues to gather momentum. There has been strong uptake already, with Vimifos, Skretting and Thai Union each achieving certification for feed mill sites. There are now eight certified mills across Mexico, Chile, Ecuador and Thailand – all producing ASC compliant feed. With more feed companies currently in the audit process, the spread of more environmentally and socially responsible feed production continues to grow globally.

ASC certified farms have until October 2025 to switch to sourcing compliant feed produced under the ASC Feed Standard. Feed mills that get certified in 2024 will not have to pay licence fees on the volume of compliant feed they produce this calendar year.

Join ASC in its mission to transform the aquafeed industry at Room CC5.1 from 1400 to 1445 CET on 24 April at Fira Barcelona Gran Via. Register for free here.
