The seafood sector is characterized by high levels of fragmentation. Low levels of consolidation and vertical integration make it difficult to find seafood sources that can offer a transparent supply chain. This, in turn, makes it difficult for companies with ambitious sustainability agendas to feed the growing demand for sustainably sourced seafood.
By making sustainability-minded suppliers more visible and the supply chain more transparent we encourage industry-wide transformation. By helping ambitious companies to find each other and foster long-lasting business partnerships, the resulting competitive advantage will lead to an increasingly sustainable seafood industry and eventually create a climate where transparency and sustainability are the standards.
The Seafood TIP’s products and services shed light on what happens in supply chains and enable companies to find business partners that can meet their quality and sustainability requirements.
The Seafood TIP sourcing intelligence products support countries in promoting their aquaculture sectors, setting their ambitions, highlighting ongoing sustainability initiatives and facilitating businesses by providing information.
Seafood TIP helps to establish partnerships working towards sustainable seafood supply chains and to facilitate investments, from production to marketing. That’s why we work closely with the Solidaridad aquaculture programme and other NGOs active in the seafood sector.
