Sustainability is key!

Sustainability is no doubt the keyword of the future, as it is the only way to ensure a future for current and next generations.

Sustainable Seafood is part of this philosophy.

Since 1998, the sturgeon has been listed by the Washington Convention as species in danger of extinction. Our partners have been fighting every day for over 30 years to safeguard this endangered fish species. The entire manufacturing facility is certified “BRC” and “IFS high level”, quite unique in the world of sturgeon breeders and caviar producers. Moreover, we have been awarded the Certificate Friend of the Sea for our sustainable approach in breeding.

The BRC Standard for Food Safety is a certification system focusing on food safety and hygiene in the food-processing industry. This BRC Global Standard for Food Safety is the most widespread certification standard in the world for food safety.





Our partners have been awarded with the IFS “High Level” Certificate. The IFS Food Standard is a GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) recognised standard for auditing food manufacturers. The focus is on food safety and the quality of processes and products. IFS-certified companies produce a product or provide a service that complies with customer specifications, while continually working on process improvements. Finally, IFS aims to ensure comparability and transparency for the consumer throughout the entire supply chain.
