Our vision and progress on corporate social responsibility
In the spirit of corporate social responsibility, we are always looking at ways to make our product range more sustainable, including our fish & seafood range. We would like to be able to enjoy delicious fish for a long time to come. That is why we offer products with the MSC or ASC label. Below, you will find more information about both quality marks.
Conservation of fish stocks and healthy oceans.
Securing seafood as a food source for future generations and as a livelihood for those working in the world's fisheries.
Moving the world's fisheries as a whole in a more sustainable direction.
The MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) is an international, independent non-profit organisation. The MSC’s mission is to protect our oceans using its ecolabel and certification programme. The organisation was established to end overfishing and does so according to the following standards:
Luiten Food – Thomas Foods Europe works with fisheries that are MSC certified, which means that:
Luiten Food – Thomas Foods Europe is certified to the Traceability Standard (MSC Chain of custody).
The ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council) is an international, independent non-profit organisation. They have developed a set of standards aimed at responsible aquaculture. ASC’s mission is to make aquaculture an environmentally and socially responsible industry using efficient market mechanisms that create value throughout the chain.
Aquaculture is a solution to meet the growing demand for fish. More than 50% of fish consumed globally already comes from aquaculture. The rapidly rising demand for farmed fish could result in improperly practised aquaculture. This can lead to water pollution, disruption of local ecosystems and poor working conditions. It is therefore vital to work with certified companies.
