CP Foods signs on to global sustainability initiative SeaBOS

The group joins companies such as Thai Union, Dongwon, Maruha, Nissui, Marine Harvest, Cermaq, Skretting and Cargill. 

Charoen Pokphand Foods (CP Foods) said it signed on to the Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship (SeaBOS) initiative, committing to improve operations across the whole supply chain.

The project is aimed at promoting stewardship of global ocean and marine ecosystems and to ensure the provision of healthy, quality and sustainable seafood for present and future generations.

SeaBOS was initiated by Stockholm University in Sweden, in which a coalition of the world‘s leading seafood companies gave precedence to security and abundance of global marine resources and prosperity of global consumers. 

Other big seafood companies already signed up to SeaBOS include Thai Union, Dongwon Industries, Maruha Nichiro Corporation, Nippon Suisan Kaisha (Nissui), Marine Harvest, Cermaq, Skretting and Cargill Aqua Nutrition.

“This is the first time that the leaders in science and business concerning marine and aquaculture sectors from Asia, Europe and North America come together to create awareness on conservation of marine environments and ecosystems as well as to find solution of natural resource management problems," said Wuthichai Sithipreedanant, senior vice president social responsibility and sustainability development of CP Foods.
