WSO Protecting our Sea. Protecting our Earth
WSO is an organization combining two consumer friendly logos (FOS,FOE), these can potentially certify sustainability for the whole food range (seafood and agro), as well as non food products and services. WSO delivers the certifications based on 30 years experience in the field, independently and by means of audits of accredited certification bodies.
WSO’s activity is international in its scope and multi products.
The requirements are strict, as proved by all benchmarks, but our price offer is very affordable and accessible to small scale and artisanal producers. All standards include Social Accountability, an always more important issue in food and non food production.
Our job does not end at the certification itself, we continuously network between sustainable companies and buyers promoting the certified products. Companies support our conservation programmes and leverage on their environmental engagement.
