It's been a year since Thailand dropped to Tier 3 on the U.S. State Department's Trafficking In Persons Report, in part due to the country's lack of controlling the ongoing problem of human trafficking in the fishing industry. What's changed? Have things improved? Recent media reports show the problem still exists, and importers at the other end of the supply chain need to consider their options to prevent being connected to this kind of behavior. In this webinar, we'll talk about just what importers can do to safeguard their seafood supply chains.
Any seafood marketer who doesn't include social media in the plan for promoting product is missing out on a huge opportunity to get the word out. This webinar, which follows up on a webinar SeafoodSource presented back in January 2015, offers more advanced tips for putting a social media platform to work.
The seafood industry is often under the microscope during a food borne outbreak and when the evidence is strong it is always followed by a recall; some out of extreme precautionary measures and others out of necessity. Even without an official recall, the threat of contamination is ever-present.
With a rise in food-related recalls in recent years, traceability systems are essential to identify the source of the problem and take appropriate corrective measures. Without a strong traceability capability, it will be harder to pinpoint the sources of contamination, and if you have a recall, you will likely end up disposing an excessive amount of product and lose money. Learn how to protect your company and take the correct precautions.

SeafoodSource Market Research Analyst Kerry Gross will join us to talk about some of the key demographics covered in the report, and tell us more about how seafood fares on America's dinner plate.
Recently, the U.S. State Department downgraded Thailand to Tier 3 in the department’s annual Trafficking in Persons Report. At the same time, media reports have drawn an embarrassing connection between well-meaning seafood importers and fishing boats in Thailand that support human trafficking. In this webinar, we’ll go over just how bad the trafficking problem is, and what you can do to ensure that human slavery isn’t touching your supply chain.
