Remacan Canarias Commits to Sourcing BAP, BSP-Certified Seafood
Remacan Canarias, located in the Canary Islands, has pledged to source seafood from Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP)- and Best Seafood Practices (BSP)-certified producers, the Global Seafood Alliance (GSA) announced on March 22. Remacan has been carrying out mollusk and crustacean purification activities for over 15 years and serves as a dispatch and distribution center. Headquartered on the island of Tenerife, the company also has branches in Gran Canaria and Lanzarote, while Remacan’s marketing radius covers all of the islands that make up the archipelago.
Remacan offers a range of quality seafood products from all over the world including scallops, clams, oysters, mussels, crab, lobster and hake. Their products arrive directly from the Galician Rías in their own tank trucks to be purified and packaged in their facilities. Remacan’s fleet of refrigerated trucks make it possible to shorten delivery times to all destinations on the islands, where service is provided through direct distribution to large-area platforms, fishmongers and the hotel and restaurant sector.
“Remacan strives to offer only the best to our customers. As an industry leader in the Canary Islands seafood market, our customers rely on us to ensure our products are sourced from quality suppliers with the highest standards,” said Pedro Luis Diez Romay, administrator of Remacan Canarias.
“We’re excited to collaborate with Remacan Canarias to bring responsible seafood to the market. It’s truly a team effort involving the whole supply chain. Partners like Remacan help bring GSA closer to realizing our vision of a world that embraces the role of responsible seafood in meeting global nutrition needs,” said Irene Padovano, who represents the BAP and BSP programs in Spain.
With the addition of Remacan Canarias, GSA’s industry-leading BAP and BSP-certification programs now have a number of market endorsers that are based in Spain or do business in Spain, including Mercadona, Makro/Metro, Aldi, Lidl, Alcampo/Auchan and Vima Foods.
