The worldwide demand for sustainable seafood is also creating a demand for an official service for business to business contacts. And this new website can provide retailers and buyers with a powerful and reliable platform to find the products they want from certified sustainable fisheries and aquaculture, says FOS.
“Products from fisheries which comply with FAO Guidelines and Minimum Requirements can be inputted in the system, even if certified by schemes other than Friend of the Sea.” explains Dr Paolo Bray, director of Friend of the Sea. “Products from over exploited stocks or fisheries whose habitat impact has not been effectively addressed, such as South African hake, New Zealand hoki, Australian mackerel icefish, cannot be included.”
Using the new FOS Marketplace is free of charge and its a good means for companies meet new customers and follow up deals.
Sustainable fishmeal, fish feed, organic and Friend of the Sea certified aquaculture products are among the various categories which can be browsed or inputted, apart from the more traditional wild-caught certified sustainable seafood.
