New manager on GAA’s European team
The Global Aquaculture Alliance’s Best Aquaculture Practices has expanded its international marketing team with the addition of Emil Avalon as new business development manager for Europe.
Avalon will help manage relationships with seafood suppliers, buyers, retailers and foodservice outlets in the United Kingdom and throughout Europe. He began his career in seafood more than 10 years ago in Madagascar. He has been operating Avalon Latitude Premium Seafood as an independent provider of supply chain support services, working with a range of major EU buyers and shrimp producers around the world on projects aimed at meeting the highest EU retail and foodservice requirements. He is trained in BAP shrimp standards and is a qualified BRC third-party auditor.
BAP VP of Development Peter Redmond said Avalon’s appointment demonstrates ongoing commitment to assist companies in the marketplace, as well as a commitment to advance the principles of BAP within the overall seafood community.
“We are very excited to welcome Emil into the GAA family,” said Redmond. “Emil brings a tremendous amount of experience with him and will be a tremendous asset as we seek to broaden the base of BAP supporters across the European continent.”
