MSC Pilot Program to Certify Restaurants
The Marine Stewardship Council and independent fisheries and environmental consultants MacAlister Elliot and Partners (MEP) are collaborating on a pilot project to promote MSC-labeled seafood products to the foodservice industry.
The project, funded by the U.K. Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, aims to make chain-of-custody audits more accessible to restaurants as part of a global MSC campaign to promote sustainable seafood in restaurants.
MEP is accredited to perform MSC chain-of-custody and sustainable fisheries assessments against the MSC's standard for well managed and sustainable fisheries. The company has completed five audits of independent London restaurants since January. Menus containing MSC seafood are now available throughout London at Tom's Place, The Duke of Cambridge, Moro, Moshi Moshi and Konstam at the Prince Albert.
