BM Supermercados of Spain Endorses Best Aquaculture Practices Program

Spanish retailer BM Supermercados is endorsing the Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification program, the latest step in its commitment to sourcing responsible seafood for its stores.

BM Supermercados belongs to Grupo Uvesco, which has 300 stores, an online store, four logistics platforms, and a team of more than 6,000 professionals. Since its formation in 1993, it has expanded across Spain in Madrid, Ávila, Cantabria, the Basque Country, Navarra and La Rioja, solidifying its place as a leader in quality food, value creation and employment.

The BM Supermercados model is based on quality food and has three pillars: fresh product, wide assortment and excellent service.

Thanks to its proximity model and its commitment to fresh food, BM Supermercados receives daily delivery from its fishmongers in the Cantabrian Sea’s main ports. It also has direct alliances with more than 400 small farmers and producers in the region that guarantee the freshness of their products and promote responsible practices. The alignment with BAP for farmed seafood supports its operational pillars: environmental responsibility, animal health and welfare, food safety and social accountability.
