Washington D.C - IFFO’s 57th Annual Conference came to a close last night with the announcement of the winners of the IFFO Awards. Danish feed company Aller Aqua (IFFO Non-Producer member) won a Leadership and Innovation Award for their expansion work in Africa, delivered by implementing a strong management structure and taking a responsible approach and focussed on CSR. IFFO Producer member American Seafoods Co. won a Leadership Award for their work in driving fisheries improvements in their industries, such as MSC certifications of the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands and Pacific hake fisheries, both posting the highest MSC scores in any whitefish fishery; and being the first US fishing company to complete a 4-pillar, Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA) with no corrective actions.

The awards were presented by the IFFO President Michael Copeland who noted that “this year’s winners showed that taking brave steps in expanding to the new markets and improving sustainable practices can both strengthen your business and ensure the continued prosperous growth of our marine ingredients industry. I would like to congratulate both Aller Aqua and American Seafoods for their important work and the other finalists in these awards, who all put forward strong examples of both leadership and innovation.” The winners were selected by the IFFO Management Board and more information about the finalists can be found here.
