San Arawa is one of the five companies allowed to display the distinctive eco-label blue in their products
Confident in the correct management of the hoki fishery, under the scope of the Federal Fishery Council of Argentina, San Arawa and other companies in the area decided to jointly promote an international audit in order to analyze the sustainability of the hoki fishery under the standards and criteria of the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).
In May 2012, the fishery was certified sustainable, which makes it the first fish fishery in South America to obtain this certification. This important achievement has allowed the company to increase its selling prices and match them to those of its main competitor, New Zealand hoki, which also carries certification under the MSC standard. San Arawa is one of the five companies authorized to use the distinctive blue ecolabel in its products.
