DKSH supports the ASC
October 1, 2010
DKSH, the leading Market Expansion Services provider with a focus on Asia, further strengthens its commitment to sustainable seafood.
DKSH’s seafood business, a part of Business Unit Performance Materials, a leading provider of food ingredients, supports the development of the ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council), thereby strengthening its commitment to offer and market sustainable seafood.
The Swiss-based Group started a project to support Vietnamese companies who are willing to gradually adapt their farming to the future ASC standards, which will be ready for market by mid 2011. Thanks to its local specialists and worldwide network, DKSH can offer valuable technical expertise and financial support to local partners.
DKSH is a pioneer for seafood sourced from South East Asia, with a special focus on Vietnam, where it operates its own sourcing team in order to guarantee highest quality standards and to comply with quality requirements set by the major retail and foodservice companies in Europe. DKSH strives to offer seafood from sustainable sources and has already made considerable investments in Vietnam so to comply with international sustainability standards.
