26/04/2018: China’s largest retailer commits to BAP for more responsible seafood

As leaders of promoting responsible seafood sourcing policies in the Chinese market, JD.com announced a commitment to Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) during Seafood Expo Global in Brussels on April 25th. E-commerce platforms in China, like JD.com, are among the leaders in the marketplace for setting responsible seafood sourcing policies.

In 2017, JD.com and the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) signed an MOU at the Seafood Expo North America in Boston to begin cooperation by offering BAP products to JD’s online customers via its fresh food platform, JD Fresh.

As a way of firmly establishing themselves as a globally recognised platform concerned about minimising the impacts of its aquaculture sourcing policies, JD.com has now agreed to further its commitment by announcing that 50 percent of the farmed supply by volume on JD Fresh will be at least two-star BAP certified by 2020. The company has also committed to more than 80 percent of its private label farmed seafood offerings to be at least two-star BAP certified by 2020.
