WSO protecting our Oceans. Protecting our Planet.

ABOUT

WSO is the only platform proposing to consumer friendly logos (not acronyms) which 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, in full independence and by mean of audits of accredited certification bodies.

WSO’s activity is international in scope and multiproduct. We are not the usual product specific certification (eg: Sustainabl Wine or Sustainable Shipping, etc), in that out certification trademarks can be applied to any product compliant with the requirements. In the long term we believe this is the best approach and strategy which will generate more synergies and visibility.

The requirements are strict, as proved by all benchmarks, but our price offer is very affordable and proportional to companies’ turnover. All standards include Social Accountability, an always more important issue in food and non food production.

Our job does not end at certification and we are aware that we need to network between sustainable companies and buyers and promote the certified products. In turnt he companies will support our conservation programs and will be able to leverage on their environmental engagement.
