Tai Foong’s Commitment to Sustainability

At Tai Foong USA, sustainability of our ocean resources is important. Sustainability has become an integral part of how Tai Foong thinks and operates. Tai Foong USA is becoming a leader in working to reduce our impact on the environment and making sure that our seafood comes from reputable sources that are harvested in the proper regulated ways with third party inspection and confirmation. Sustainable seafood can be defined as seafood that is either wild caught or farmed in ways that ensures the long term viability of species, and protects and improves our environment and the rights and livelihoods of fisheries dependent communities.

Support of Local Livelihoods

With decades of experience in the seafood industry, Tai Foong USA is actively involved in supporting sustainable fisheries, both wild and farmed. We are committed to working to make all our seafood certified sustainable and socially and responsibly sourced. We work closely with some of the best scientists and environmentalists in the world to make affordable, quality sustainable seafood choices available.

Sustainable, Always

We are the first company to market Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Certified shrimp and Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certified tilapia in the United States. For many years, we have been working with the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership to work on fisheries to become more sustainable. We have a Fishery Improvement Project in Baja California Sur, Mexico, to help local fishermen use better management and gear for fishing. We also continually work with the Monterey Bay Aquarium to stay ahead on sustainable initiatives.

Data-Driven Environmental Protection

We seek long-term partnerships, allowing us to know in depth what our customer will get and of what quality. Because of our focus on environmental sustainability, you can be assured that collaborations with fisheries can always be responsibly sourced. Business strategies and environment sustainability are not conflicting goals. Tai Foong USA will be able to supply our customers in such a way that does not impair or alter business strategies but still promotes positive environmental sustainability and social responsibility.
