We are delighted to announce that JCS Fish has become the first UK seafood supplier to voluntarily disclose its farmed seafod sourcing through the Ocean Disclosure Project (ODP).
JCS Fish is still a relatively small business, but we have big ambitions when it comes to operating responsibly. From the way we source our salmon and make our products; to the way we manage our team, support our community and work with local charities, we’re continually trying to think, plan and act in the best possible way.
We’ve already made big steps forward in reducing our environmental impact and are proud to have been recognised with a Silver Investors in the Environment Award last year. We know that packaging and plastic are a big issue for the environment so this year we’ve also launched an internal Eco Group, which is currently reviewing our entire portfolio with a view to the introduction of new packaging solutions.
Getting rid of plastic from modern food packaging whilst maintaining quality and hygiene is tough but we’re optimistic. We hope that across our JCS and BigFish Brand products, we are soon going to be able to minimise non-recyclable plastic and maximise our use of sustainable materials, hopefully with new packaging solutions starting to appear later this year.
So, watch this space and hopefully we'll be able to share more progress with you later in the year. Meanwhile, read more about what companies all over the UK are doing for Responsible Business Week.
