We have completed our initial assessment with the Global Aquaculture Alliance’s Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) program. BAP standards are industry-accepted guidelines for farm-raised seafood. Based on the assessment, we informed our suppliers in 2009 of new expectations with regard to farm-raised seafood. For farmed species that are corporately procured and have existing BAP standards in place, we expect all suppliers to reach Level 2 certification by the end of 2011.
