Mr. Giustra, cofounder with President Bill Clinton of the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership, which recently transitioned into a new independent entity named Acceso, visited Acceso El Salvador’s new state-of-the art tilapia hatchery in El Salvador earlier this week.

During his visit, Mr. Giustra expressed his recognition of Spring Genetics’ tilapia qualities and potential, and encouraged the partnership between Spring Genetics and Acceso El Salvador to meet the growing need in El Salvador for high-quality fingerlings.

Acceso El Salvador—the leading smallholder sourcing company in El Salvador that supports, sources and commercializes tilapia and seafood production from smallholder producers to the largest national supermarket and restaurant chains—is Spring Genetics’ exclusive distributor in the country and supplies Salvadoran tilapia farmers and local organizations with Spring Genetics’ high-quality tilapia fingerlings, featuring the latest and improved genetics from one of the most advanced tilapia breeding programs in the world.

 

We're excited to partner with Spring Genetics to improve the tilapia value chain in El Salvador. Acceso El Salvador's new tilapia hatchery will deliver fingerlings that make producers more profitable and feed a growing unmet demand for tilapia from Salvadoran consumers."
