Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC)

As a part of Hofseth Internationals sustainability program ASC certification was a logical choice to move forward with. ASC has in a short period of time become a highly respected standard world wide and goes hand in hand with Hofseth Aqua’s vision to deliver the best rainbow trout in the market.
