(vasep.com.vn) GlobalGAP certified aquaculture producers can now gain an additional consumer label for their products. In collaboration with the Friend of the Sea (FoS) consumer label, GlobalGAP is now offering the FoS Add-On Module for Aquaculture.

Accordingly, GlobalGAP certified aquaculture producers that successfully comply with the four criteria defined in the FoS Add-On at farm level will be allowed to use a special consumer label, consisting of FoS consumer label and GlobalGAP number - GGN.

The FoS Add-On criteria cover the impact on water body sediment, the effect on drinking water and fishing areas as well as GRASP criteria. This add-on can be audited during the GlobalGAP assessment. The FoS Add-On is now being offered to Aquaculture Version 4 certified producers.

Reportedly, FoS is a non-profit non-governmental organization for the conservation of marine habitats by means of market incentives.
