It’s taken long enough for the EU to show sound judgement!

EU

What are MEP’s doing? Rather than defining how small toothpicks have to be, or worrying about the speed at which train doors close, Brussels seems to have finally caught on to actual environmental emergencies.

After what has been referred to as a ‘breakthrough’ in Brussels, Europe has finally said it will list Bluefin Tuna as an endangered species, while further scientific studies on the latest population figures of the species are carried out.

The 27 countries of the EU are expected to vote on suspending the trade on bluefin tuna. If these votes receive international support all international trade may be prohibited.

Maybe foodservice’s voice is being heard!
