We decided not to use third party logos on our branded products to tell you about our seafood sources as they don’t always included the elements that we believe are important and due to the number available are often confusing.

Instead of third party logos we put our responsibly sourced and responsibly farmed logos onto our fresh seafood products.

Responsible Sourced Logos

The criteria we use to decide whether these logos can be used on our products is based on the codes of conduct developed by the Sustainable Seafood Coalition.

Sustainable Seafood Coalition is a group of like-minded businesses that are united in a vision of sustainable seafood for all.

As a member we have adopted the voluntary codes of conduct for the environmental labelling and sourcing of seafood products.
