The canned tuna aisle has become an area of increasing concern for North American retailers. Media exposés and advocacy campaigns have shined a spotlight on the environmental impacts and human rights and labor risks in global tuna supply chains.
Facing these pressures, a number of FMI retail members have expressed a keen interest in participating in a pre-competitive dialogue to begin addressing critical sustainability challenges. In late July 2018, a short survey was circulated to potential members of a “Retail Canned Tuna Forum” to determine the key areas of interest and concern in canned tuna.
Join Tom Pickerell & Kathryn Novak from Sustainable Fisheries Partnership, and Elsie Tanadjaja & Kathleen Mullen-Ley from FishWise to explore the results of the survey, along with proposed dates for an in-person meeting of the Retail Canned Tuna Forum.
