We are a group of leading companies sharing one main mission: to drive the future of shrimp aquaculture to be a clean, sustainable, and successful practice for the world. In order to reach our goal, we’ve set out a clear and ambitious plan to lead the whole sector to the next level.
For a greater future we will:
- Produce the highest quality, healthy, nutritious, and pure product farmed in a sustainable and caring manner
- Work in partnership with each other, and with others, to drive continuous improvements in our social and environmental performance
- Create differentiation and improved choice for consumers in global seafood markets, by increasing awareness of the preferential environmental and social practices of SSP members, and setting an example for others to follow
SSP members are committed to achieving the highest environmental and social standards. In order to document our performance and demonstrate accountability against our commitments, we will be using the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) Standard as our baseline for progress. The ASC standard provides independent certification for over 150 indicators and is widely recognized as the most challenging and stringent certification scheme for aquaculture.
As progressive leaders in the future of shrimp aquaculture, SSP members are also committed to three additional criteria which all SSP product must meet:
Neutral Impact on Water
Shaping the future of shrimp aquaculture
By working in collaboration with other companies, NGOs and stakeholders, together we aim to support industry-wide improvements in social and environmental performance and elevate the whole industry to the next level in sustainable practices and provide consumers with the highest quality products.
Join those changing the future of shrimp aquaculture
Achieving our vision for the sustainable future of shrimp aquaculture involves engaging more small and mid-sized farms in working towards the highest levels of environmental and social performance in order to produce the highest quality shrimp. By including more farms and regions into the SSP program we hope the raise the performance of the sector as a whole.
The best food is the food you can trust
SSP aims to create differentiation in global seafood markets so that consumers can easily find and choose shrimp products produced to the highest environmental and social standards. We believe in producing high quality shrimp – farmed by people who care, for people who care.
