Seafood giant Thai Union Group has appointed Adam Brennan as its new group sustainability director, following the departure of his predecessor Darian McBain in July.

Brennan will take over the reins of SeaChange, Thai Union’s sustainability strategy comprised of four programs: safe and legal labor, responsible sourcing, responsible operations, people and communities.

He will focus on initiatives such as tuna commitments, sustainable packaging and climate change strategy.

Brennan comes most recently from global fashion chain C&A, where he worked in various sustainability roles.

McBain, known as Thai Union Group's "sustainability superwoman," left the company in July, after six years working as global director of corporate affairs and sustainability.

In June, the THB 132.4 billion (€3.5 billion/$ 4.2 billion) group signed a deal with domestic plant-based food company V Foods to develop and expand its plant-based food businesses, and in April it signed a deal with cell-based seafood startup BlueNalu and Japanese conglomerate Mitsubishi.
