BAP (Best Aquaculture Practices) is one of the most comprehensive and best-known certification systems for ensuring the sustainability of aquaculture products.
BAP operates according to its four ‘Pillars of Responsible Aquaculture’: food safety, social welfare, environmental and animal health.
All our farming sites and our processing plant have been awarded stars, meaning we have a two-star BAP certification. Our feed supplier, Skretting, is expected to earn a BAP certification soon and we are working on having our hatchery fully approved. These actions will earn Hiddenfjord a four-star BAP accreditation in the near future.
GlobalG.A.P. is the worldwide quality assurance standard for good agricultural practices, which covers criteria for the environment and ecology, animal welfare, food safety, and staff health and safety. The standard serves as a credible third-party verification to confirm that our business operations are both sustainable and safe, and that our salmon is farmed responsibly in ecologically sound conditions.
GLOBALG.A.P. covers the entire production chain – from the feed manufacturer to the hatchery, nursery, and grow-out, including transportation, harvest and post-harvest activities.
Our GLOBALG.A.P. number (GGN) is: 4063061339980.
