M&J Seafood wins the Sustainable Future Award


M&J Seafood were announced as the ultimate winners of the Sustainable Future Award at the Seafood Awards 2009, as the judges praised M&J for tackling the challenges of responsibly sourcing seafood, manifest not only to their business practices but their collaborative engagement at a wider level.

The judges were particularly impressed by M&J’s grass – roots commitment to sustainability, demonstrated by four of their initiatives: their Cornish albacore tuna, the British Skippers Scheme, their support of MSC certified products and their commitment to champion alternative and under-utilised species.

Mike Berthet, director of fish and seafood at M&J Seafood, who I have known for many years is a true ambassador to sustainability in foodservice and is someone who tirelessly tackles issues of huge importance to the industry.

Well Done M&J – much deserved!
