Sodexo Netherlands commits to ASC
Sodexo Netherlands on Tuesday announced it became the Aquaculture Stewardship Council’s 100th logo license holder.
With its Better Tomorrow Plan, Sodexo commits to source sustainable fish and seafood in all the countries where it operates by 2015.
Once Sodexo Netherland obtains ASC chain of custody certification, it will be the first contract caterer eligible to use the ASC logo. Sodexo will then be able to display the ASC logo on pangasius supplied by ATL seafood, further demonstrating its commitment to environmental and social responsibility.
“At Sodexo, health and wellness are of supreme importance. As a service provider, Sodexo has considerable influence on the eating habits of over 350,000 daily consumers in the Netherlands. To promote health and wellness, we offer solutions by proposing a high-quality, well-balanced menu with reduced intake of fats, sugar and salt and a wide choice of sustainable products, such as fish and seafood,” said Hairo van den Berg, Sodexo corporate development director.
“To raise awareness and maximize collaboration with both our clients and consumers, we will also participate in the first 'Think Fish Week' campaign in the Netherlands together with 85 percent of the Dutch supermarket sector. We are proud to be ASC’s 100th logo license holder.”
