There are many aspects to sustainability, but our main aim is to operate in a responsible way which meets the needs of people and business - without compromising the needs of future generations.
Our products clearly show the Fish for Life logo to help everyone choose sustainable fish – it’s our guarantee that all Young’s fish has been sourced according to our rigorous Fish for Life criteria.
Young’s has been supplying fish and seafood for over 200 years - as a responsible business we aim to meet the needs of people and business without compromising the needs of future generations. We have developed practical and positive steps to fish sustainability through our award-winning Fish for Life approach. Fish for Life governs all the species bought by Young's Seafood - whether wild-caught or farmed.
All our purchasing decisions are made with a clear understanding of the capacity of the environment to support the fishing or fish farming effort involved. We are also aligned to the objectives of the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) for wild caught fish. As we are a major purchaser of seafood from most of the world’s principal fisheries, we initiate, support and stimulate projects, policies and actions that contribute towards long term sustainability.
This policy of engagement drives improvement and best practice through the industry. The Fish for Life approach is founded on our Ten Principles for Responsible Fish Procurement – the rules which govern all our sourcing decisions.
We are committed to playing our part in addressing fisheries and other important environmental, workplace and social issues, both locally and internationally. We hold our own policies, which we regularly review in light of a rapidly changing world.
