Global G.A.P (Good Agricultural Practise) the aquaculture industry regulator in promoting worldwide industry standards, has appointed Philip, our Technical Director to the committee board to aid the development of NGO voluntary standards for good aquacultural practice.
Valeska Weymann, Head of Aquaculture Standards for Global G.A.P, said: ‘We are very glad to have Aqualife Services Ltd as a recently joined member and Philip Brown as part of our GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture Technical Committee. His participation on this committee is of great value in terms of animal health and welfare criteria established on the standard and currently under revision process for new version 5 to be launched in 2015’.
We have been working with Global G.A.P as an associate member since 2012 guiding customers on required standards in line with G.A.P standards in regards to the production of safe fish food products. With the appointment of Philip Brown on the committee we have a further opportunity to lead the industry standards.
Philip Brown, Technical Director at Aqualife, said; ‘Global G.A.P is recognised as one of the leading standards for food safety and welfare, making it the perfect industry body for Aqualife to be part of. I am delighted to have been appointed onto the committee – it is a great opportunity for me to learn from the other members of the committee on what drives the standards that are required in their areas of expertise, while being able to guide the industry standards with my own experience and knowledge.’
