Camanica Gets Global Gap Certification


For the development of its food safety and sustainability policies, the Pescanova Group has selected GLOBAL GAP to certify its shrimp farms and Bureau Veritas to carry out its third-party audits.


Camanica, Pescanova’s integrated shrimp farming business in Nicaragua, is the second shrimp-farming company, after Promarisco in Ecuador, to achieve GLOBAL GAP certification.  In the near future, NovaHonduras and NovaGuatemala will be joining them.


Camanica currently employs around 1,400 people.   Its biggest customers are the European Union and the United States.


The GLOBAL GAP aquaculture standards cover the entire production chain, from broodstock facilities, hatcheries and feed mills to farming, harvesting and processing.  Its standards serve as a practical manual for ensuring food safety, minimal environmental impact and compliance with animal welfare and worker health and safety requirements.
