VIET NAM - Vietnam 's bourgeoning seafood industry has received a boost as two seafood exporters have been granted international food safety certificates by the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA).

Sao Ta Foods and Viet Hai Seafood have joined six other seafood companies that have received the GAA’s Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification.

The GAA is a non-profit trade association dedicated to ensuring responsible fish and shellfish farming and conservation of environmental and social resources.

Presently, BAP is only applied to shrimp products. It standardises hygiene and product sources of origin.

Once certified, businesses are permitted to use the BAP stamp on packaging and in advertisements of their products.
