Penny Markets First ASC Certified Shrimp in Germany


Penny, a subsidiary of Rewe Group, is the first supermarket to introduce Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certified farmed shrimp in Germany.  The shrimp is available in around 2,200 Penny and Fish & More (a partner of Penny) stores.


The ASC certified shrimp sold in the Fish & More stores is produced by Omarsa in Ecuador, the first shrimp farm in the world to gain ASC certification.


To date, a total of 13 shrimp farms have received ASC certification in Ecuador and Vietnam.  Another 20 farms are being evaluated for ASC certification.
