I&J abalone farm achieves ASC certification

  (SOUTH AFRICA, 1/22/2016)

Irvin & Johnson Holding Company Ltd has become the first abalone producer in South Africa to achieve certification against the Aquaculture Stewardship Council  (ASC) Abalone Standar for responsible farming.

The certified aquaculture farm, located at Danger Point, was awarded this accreditation after satisfying stringent social and environmental criteria assessed by independent third-party certifier SCS Global Services.

The farm annual yield is 300 tonnes of abalone. Its production capacity is determined yearly by type and volume, while the farm produces batches of abalone monthly.

Depending on the size and growth, selections are made weekly, then graded and harvested on a daily basis.

The production system includes monitoring, control and robust traceability systems featuring an electronic information system to track and record information relevant to production, harvest and processing.

Irvine & Johnson continues to supply fresh, frozen, canned and dried abalone products to South Africa, and it also exports to Hong Kong, China, Singapore and Japan, places where this mollusc is greatly appreciated.
