Our Commitment to Sustainability
We at Ocean Brands have a dual obligation to protect our environment for future generations and ensure resources from our oceans are harvested both responsibly and sustainably. We strive to be good stewards of our oceans so that fish stocks continue to thrive and remain resilient to our fishing pressures. Responsible fishing practices for sustainable fish are the key pillars of our commitment.
Our long-term objective is to work with suppliers who commit to using sustainable fishing practices which ensure minimal disruption to the ocean’s ecosystems. These practices address overfishing, reducing bycatch of non-target species and harvesting stock in a way that minimizes marine damage to ensure we produce sustainable seafood.
All Ocean Brands’ canned seafood products are traceable. This means we can determine the origins of any product throughout the supply chain. We can establish which fishing boat, area, method of catch or processing plant our products originate from and to which retailers they’re finally shipped.
Ensuring human and labour rights are upheld is key to any sustainability commitment. That’s why we only work with suppliers who share our vision of providing a safe and positive work environment. More
