Abagold is the first abalone company in the world to be awarded the Friend of the Sea certification. Certified products – sold locally and in export markets, including Hong Kong and Singapore – will now proudly carry the Friend of the Sea international eco-label.
Abagold is located in Hermanus and operates on four farms: Sea View, Amaza, Sulumanzi and Bergsig. The four aquaculture sites combined comprise 10 hectares and house over 2,000 land-based tanks. All potential environmental impacts are managed and professionally controlled, preventing any impact on the surrounding ecosystem. No change or alteration which could have negatively affected the environment occurred during and after the construction of all the various sites.“Abalone have been identified as one of the many classes of organism threatened with extinction due to overfishing, acidification of oceans” explains Dr Bray, director of Friend of the Sea. “Farming abalone can decrease the fishing pressure and help recovery.”
“Abagold applied for Friend of the Sea certification, as we are fully committed to the environment and we consider the organisation to be the most reliable measure of such sustainability standards. Abagold is the first abalone company in the world to achieve this certification. This is a very clear message for our customers and consumers regarding our commitment to marine habitat conservation,” says Mr. Werner Piek, the Marketing manager at Abagold.

The company exports live, canned and dried abalone from it’s ISO 22000 accredited production facility all over the world and builds lasting relationships with loyal clients.
Abagold also produces top quality aquatic feeds through subsidiary, Specialised Aquatic Feeds (Pty) Ltd.

The Smile of the Child

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 13 aprile 2015

Yiannis-PanousisThe Day Centre “THE HOUSE OF THE CHILD” which is a community unit providing customized clinical mental health services for therapeutic treatment and psychosocial rehabilitation of children and adolescents victims of abuse, neglect or domestic violence, as well as children or adolescents involved in cases of bullying was inaugurated on 8 April 2015 in Athens, Greece.The Day Centre was founded by the Greek NGO and operates within the framework of the Operational Programme “Human Resources Development” of the NSRF 2007-2013, co-financed by the Ministry of Health and the European Social Fund.Costas Yannopoulos, President of the BoD of “The Smile of the Child” underlined the need to have a specialized structure like this, unique in Greece and innovative on the European level. “THE HOUSE OF THE CHILD” is staffed with a psychiatrist–scientific coordinator, three child psychiatrists, three clinical psychologists, a special educator, a speech therapist, a social worker, an occupational therapist and two administrators. The interdisciplinary therapeutic team undertakes a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation and therapeutic intervention scheme to address the complex disorders and wider psychosocial needs of children victims.The Deputy Citizen Protection Minister, Giannis Panousis stated: “All partnerships designed to protect children meet my absolute support as a Minister, Criminologist and personally. We are all responsible to save those children traumatized by our own mistakes. If we cannot prevent their sufferings well in advance, we should at least heal their wounds. I am well aware of the work of “The Smile of the Child” and we are sharing the common goal of protecting children. George Nikolaidis, Psychiatrist and Scientific Coordinator of the Day Centre referred to the supportive services of the Centre and underlined how the multi-disciplinary therapeutic team undertakes a comprehensive and holistic diagnostic evaluation for those children in need. “Regrettably the cases of children victims which end up to be treated by public and non-public services are very few in relations to the actual reality on child abuse. The Day Centre was created for all children. We have put special emphasis to our human resources in order to provide supportive services to children who have been victims of traumatic victimization experiences within or outside the family environment or are living in different care frameworks either traditional or in alternative care”. The Deputy Prosecutor of the Supreme Court, Kseni Dimitriou, the President of the French Organisation “La Mouette” Annie Gourgue, the representative of Ministry of Health, Evangelos Augoulas, the Greek MP Konstantinos Bargiotas, the Mayor of Zografou Municipality Tina Kafatsaki and representatives of public authorities and Embassies were among the participants to the inaugural ceremony.In addition, Costas Yannopoulos presented a fully-equipped facility, specially designed for children victims who are participating in judicial proceedings and according to the international standards of child-friendly justice and more specifically the multi-disciplinary method of work of the Child Advocacy Center (CAC) in the United States.This facility will be set under the disposal of competent authorities (Judiciary, Prosecution and Police authorities) as well as health workers with an ultimate aim to create a multi-disciplinary Response Child Abuse Team staffed with law enforcement authorities, Medical and Forensic Services, Mental Health Services, the Prosecution and other supportive services for families and children victims and in direct cooperation with the National Helpline for Children SOS1056 and under the coordination of the Ministry of Citizen Protection and the Ministry of Justice. The Day Centre’s services are addressed to children and adolescents up to age of 18 who live either in residential care or in the community having a documented history of exposure to violence of any kind.
