TESCO Animal Welfare Standards
Striving for continuous improvements in animal welfare across the aquaculture industry is part of Benchmark’s DNA. Worldwide, we are recognized in the industry as a leader in animal welfare, through our operations and welfare standards which we promote with our customers and our broader outreach in the industry.
As part of this engagement, this year, we became a recognized trainer in Tesco welfare standards, which underpins the requirements to which producers, growers and suppliers must comply in order to supply aquatic products to Tesco. We delivered animal welfare training for farmers in Asia as part of Tesco’s effort to promote animal welfare in their supply chain.
We believe the future of aquaculture lies in sustainability and we have a commitment to transparency. Download our ESG Group Report
We are delighted that the work of our Technical Service team has been recognized by Tesco as best practice animal welfare standards.
This work adds to all that Benchmark is doing to improve the life and culture standards of all animals in our care throughout the entire production cycle.
