Indonesia's CP Prima to escalate shrimp exports to EU




Indonesian shrimp producer Central Proteina Prima (CP Prima) said it expects to export more frozen shrimp to Europe soon, after recently receiving an international food certification, according to Jakarta Post.


The certification from the US-based Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) means the company is living up to good environmental practices and international standards of hygiene.


"With this certificate, our products will sell better in the international market, especially in Europe," CP Prima president director Irwan Tirtariyadi was quoted as saying.


He said the company plans to send its products to Italy, Cyprus and Scandinavian countries, in addition to its existing markets UK, Holland and Germany.
