Millions of people attending this year’s Games will be able to enjoy sustainably and responsibly sourced seafood knowing that they are helping to support thriving fishing and farming communities and to protect the environment
Since the Olympic Committee of Rio 2016 determined that the supply of fish for the Olympic and Paralympic Games should be certified, some companies interested in obtaining international certification seals to accredit to provide athletes.
The recent ASC certification means that Netuno can play a key role in providing responsibly sourced fish in some of the estimated 14 million meals to be served during the Games, an operation that has been described as the largest peacetime catering
After an independent, third-party assessment conducted by Control Union Peru, Netuno was awarded ASC certification against the Tilapia standard.
Tilapia farmer Netuno Internacional has become the first farm in Brazil to gain Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification.
