Sustainability, certification and traceability are the building blocks of our endless pledge to work globally with responsible partners that make a difference.
At Raw Seafoods Inc. we know that maintaining a prosperous environment is the foundation of a healthy food supply. We support a wide range of efforts aimed at keeping our oceans thriving while supporting healthier ways to manage and harvest in a more sustainable manner.
Now, more than ever it is important to select suppliers and partners based on their committment to not just to our industry, but to the environment as well. In addition to working with the MSC, we have strong relationships with well managed, certified fisheries.
The Scallop Success Story
The Atlantic Sea Scallop fishery is considered to be one of the greatest success stories in the world and one of the best managed wild fisheries. These scallops are managed using a combined approach of effort limitation and rotating harvest areas, which maximizes scallop yields while protecting the beds of young, maturing scallops.
As a Charter Member of the American Scallop Association, we are now able to offer MSC Certified Scallops from the US East Coast Scallop Fishery. Third party MSC Certification means that you can expect sustainable fish stocks with minimization of environmental impacts and effective management. This certification is valid up to 5 years and will be reviewed yearly to ensure compliance.
