Balfegó, the first company to receive AENOR, the bluefin tuna sustainability certificate
The first step to acting sustainably and in a way that respects the environment and others is to be consistent with your own values. It’s something that either matters to you or not; it can’t be partial.
We must take action because when we talk about sustainability, we have to show it. When you’re passionate about something, you do everything you can to protect it and keep it alive.
The second step of being sustainable is showing it: with your team, with others, with each choice you make and each thing you do. And that’s exactly what we do at Balfegó. Our commitment to sustainability goes beyond the basics; we don’t just feel it, we are committed to doing it correctly. We want to be the example that inspires others to take on this commitment as well. To achieve this, we are dedicated to good practices and AENOR’s environmental sustainability certificate is an example of that.
AENOR’s environmental sustainability certificate confirms our commitment to the environment
Balfegó is the only bluefin tuna farming company with AENOR’s environmental sustainability certificate. This certificate confirms our commitment to the environment, minimizing the impact and favoring better resource management. It also verifies that an organization, product, process, or service meets the required technical regulations or specifications.
With this AENOR certification, we can guarantee the integral control of the different activity phases, such as catching, feeding, marketing, and the environmental monitoring of Bafelgó’s activities.
From the beginning, we’ve been committed to sustainability and respecting the environment. All of this effort has led us to receive AENOR’s environmental sustainability certificate, a recognized certification entity that operates in 90 countries. In addition, through our Department of Research and Sustainability, we spearhead diverse research, development, and innovation projects about fishing, the species, and the quality of our products with universities and scientific institutions.
Being the only company in our field with this certification is an honor and differentiates us from other companies. In fact, we also received the Sustainability Award given by the chef’s association FACYRE that recognizes the work of people and organizations in Spanish gastronomy, linked to the sector or not.
