It is the responsibility of all businesses to support sustainable seafood

You have a duty to source seafood responsibly – it makes good business sense. Supply chain buyers have tremendous leverage to set and promote new norms.

Many businesses claim their seafood products are ‘sustainably or responsibly sourced’. Before the SSC labeling code, there was little clarity on what these claims meant. The SSC helps to establish consistency on labeling and sourcing within the seafood supply chain.

Our members are driving real change

We confront problems head on and aim to influence changes in supply chain practice.

The SSC is not a certification scheme or an eco-label. Instead, it offers a practical and collaborative way of demonstrating good sourcing practices.

Better buying decisions mean healthier seas

As a member, you commit to two codes – the Responsible Sourcing Code and the Environmental Labelling Code. These codes set a benchmark for industry best practice. Whether you’re a small supplier, a restaurant, or a supermarket, you can provide your customers with accurate information and the confidence to make the right choices.
