Wal-Mart and BAP Certification Seminar


A representative of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.—in 2014 the largest company in the world by revenue with 11,000 stores and 2.2 million employees—will be among the speakers featured at a half-day seminar on the Global Aquaculture Alliance’s Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification program at the Sheraton Saigon Hotel in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, on August 5, 2015, beginning at 9 a.m. local time.  The seminar will cover all types of Vietnamese seafood, including shrimp.  The representative, Beth Grant, Wal-Mart’s global director of seafood sourcing, will address the push for four-star BAP status, which denotes that a product originates from a BAP-certified processing plant, farm, hatchery and feed mill.  It’s the highest such achievement in the BAP program.  Grant will also discuss concerns and opportunities for Vietnamese seafood products from the perspective of the USA marketplace.


Marcos Moya, BAP Facilities Development Manager, and Ms. Thanh Binh, BAP’s representative in Vietnam, will lead the seminar.  Among the topics to be addressed are the fundamentals of the BAP program and the market value of the BAP program from an international perspective.
