On August 26th 2002, Naturland registered BioCentinela as complying with its standards and requirements for organic shrimp production. With this certification BioCentinela joins a very restricted and quality-dedicated group of organic white shrimp producers. It is important to highlight that there are only 9 organic certified farms of white shrimp in the world and 8 in Ecuador.
Naturland was established in 1982 in Gräfelfing, near Munich, Germany. It has grown to become one of the most important organizations in the field of organic agriculture. On the global level Naturland is one of the major certifying organizations for organic produce.
