Newsflash: September 2013

Dear colleague

Retailers across the Netherlands, last week, did their bit and more for improving environmental sustainability and social responsibility. Consumers embraced the first Think Fish week as ASC and MSC certified seafood was promoted nationwide by 85 per cent of the Dutch supermarkets.

And, retailers and consumers can make an even bigger difference soon as around 70 per cent of salmon farms globally have committed to become ASC certified by 2020. 

These are two highlights of the last few months, read on to find out more.
