In October 2018, the Kamuthanga tilapia farm, located in Machakos, Kenya, has been audited for the quality standard of EMA (EcoMark Africa). Holland Aqua has prepared, trained and guided the farm’s management and employees to meet the 200 EMA bullet point standards. After a final verification of additional measures the farm has been nominated for certification at platinum level, the highest of 4 certification levels. It is the first time that an EMA certificate will be awarded to a fish farm on the African continent.
Certificate: EcoMark Africa (EMA)
