Hiddenfjord achieves four-star BAP accreditation

Hiddenfjord has achieved the maximum BAP four-star designation following certification of our freshwater facility, Fútaklettur.


Hiddenfjord is the first salmon farming company in the Faroe Islands to attain a four-star certification.


“In our interactions with business partners, the BAP accreditation emerges as a marker of excellence, epitomizing our dedication to premium salmon production,” said Óli Hansen, sales director at Hiddenfjord. “Attaining our fourth star is not merely an accomplishment but a testament to our relentless pursuit of premium quality and sustainability. We look forward to sharing its implications with our customers, ensuring they benefit from our commitment to sustainable salmon farming.”


“It’s been an impressive journey for Hiddenfjord to certify their whole production chain,” said Iain Shone, director of market development-Europe at GSA. “They committed to four-star from the outset, put a huge amount of work into this project and I know the whole team is really proud of their achievement. Well done!”
