SeafoodSource hosted an engaging chat on Twitter focused on seafood traceability and origin labeling today. Editors James Wright, Michelle McNickle, and Sean Murphy led the #SfSchat.
In the last 10 years we’ve seen 25 of the top U.S. retailers make commitments to purchasing sustainable seafood. We’ve seen a lot less traction and follow-through. Leading companies could be doing a lot more to drive supply chains in the right direction.
Exposés of deception and abuse in food supply chains have become disturbingly routine. Seafood is no exception. We need to rebuild the systems and behaviors of the global interconnected brokers, corporations and governments that touch your food before it hits your plate. Pulling that off will require better data.
