APR tuna, under sustainability awareness umbrella
More than 9% of global fishing.
Buying APR is a responsible decision for fishing, workers and the planet.
Every time you buy a can of tuna with the AENOR APR stamp, you are making a responsible and socially committed decision. By looking for the AENOR APR stamp in tuna cans, you are acquiring a tuna that is internationally recognised as the only one with a stamp that guarantees the social and labour rights of fishing, according to the ILO Convention 188 on the fishing work, and that guarantees the best responsible fishing practices.
We guarantee the socially sustainable and responsible origin of APR Tuna
To value the good work of the Spanish tuna fleet, AENOR has developed a Chain of Custody certification scheme (Traceability) that shows that the tuna comes from certified vessels according to the requirements included in the UNE 195006 Standard.
