Royal Greenland Supports the Development of the ASC Standards

Leading international seafood group Royal Greenland has declared its support for the development of the ASC standards by the Aquaculture Dialogues. The ASC’s mission is to transform aquaculture towards environmental and social sustainability using efficient market mechanisms which create value across the chain.

“We have the responsibility to supply our customers and our consumers with seafood from sustainable sources,” says Bruno Olesen, sales and marketing director of Royal Greenland. “We therefore contribute to the Aquaculture Dialogues’ standard setting process by reviewing and commenting on the Aquaculture Dialogues’ draft standards for shrimp, salmon and freshwater trout. The standard setting process in the Aquaculture Dialogues is probably the most robust, transparent and universal approach involving a large and diverse group of stakeholders.”

Royal Greenland already works with MSC certified fishery products and will work with ASC certified farmed seafood products in order to achieve its objective to provide customers with seafood from environmentally and socially sustainable sources.”

Royal Greenland supplies a wide range of seafood and convenience products to the retail trade and food service industry internationally, and is the world’s largest supplier of cold water prawns. The group operates its own processing facilities in Greenland, Denmark, Germany, Poland and Canada. It also has floating plants on its trawler fleet in Greenland. Royal Greenland has local sales offices in several European countries as well as in Japan and China.
