Thai Union partners with SFP

Using SFP’s Seafood Metrics will allow Thai Union to continue to improve the oversight, transparency and traceability of its supply chains, as well as to assess and monitor its global wild and farmed supply chains. used in its activities in the EU, the United States and Asia. Seafood Metrics aggregates and tracks information about the quality of governance, target stock health, human rights risks, and environmental impacts in a company’s fisheries. Additional sustainability indicators, such as certifications, human rights risk assessment, NGO ratings and traceability will be included in tracking.

Other actions under the partnership will include a bycatch audit of Thai Union’s tuna supply chain. Bycatch, ie the unintentional catch of non-target species, is one of the most important issues affecting the biological sustainability of marine fisheries. By assessing the impact of supply chains, the Company can then take further action.

The partnership with SFP will also enable Thai Union to continue and deepen its participation in the Ocean Disclosure Project (ODP), with supply chain and sustainability information to be made public through the ODP platform.

“Thai Union is constantly exploring new opportunities to enhance transparency across its operations, and our partnership with SFP is further evidence of this unwavering commitment,” said Adam Brennan, Group Director, Sustainability at Thai Union, in a press release.

“A key part of this new partnership will be Thai Union’s ability to use SFP’s Seafood Metrics system, which helps companies assess the sustainability of their seafood products, understand the effectiveness of existing improvement efforts and to identify the most important improvement priorities,” he added. .
