Friend of the Sea announces the certification of the first cockles products, from the main Spanish canning company Frinsa del Noroeste. The certification, by an independent international certification body, comes after an in-depth audit of the production sites of the Frinsa’s supplier Cofradía de Pescadores “San Bartolomé Noia”, operated in one of the bays (rias) of Galicia, at the estuary of the Tambre river.
“Frinsa already produces tuna and mussels certified sustainable by Friend of the Sea,” states Mr Carregal, CEO of Frinsa. “Cockles are typical from Galicia and produced in harmony with the environment. We are proud they obtained this international sustainability recognition.”
