High Liner, SFP team up
High Liner Foods on Monday announced that it will collaborate with the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) to strengthen its commitment to promoting healthy oceans and sustainable fisheries worldwide.
The Nova Scotia-based seafood company will work closely with SFP to develop programs and strategies to ensure its customers advance toward the company’s goal of purchasing 100 percent of its raw materials from certified sustainable sources.
SFP has worked with High Liner over the past several years in a number of fisheries, including whitefish. The partnership builds on existing relationships High Liner has with the Marine Stewardship Council, Aquaculture Certification Council, Global Aquaculture Alliance and other organizations.
“We are excited and proud to be working closely with SFP to advance our mission of ensuring the long term sustainability of our supply,” said Bill DiMento, High Liner’s corporate director of sustainability. “The combined leadership efforts of High Liner Foods and the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership will result in a much brighter future in the seafood business for generations to come.”
