Over 150 Compass Group sites will be serving MSC certified seafood meals to celebrate Sustainable Seafood Day on Friday, 15 March.
Compass Group will also be hosting 2012 Masterchef winner, Andy Allen, at Taronga Zoo in Sydney, who will be cooking up a storm with MSC certified seafood.
In 2012 Compass Group became the first Australian foodservice provider to complete the rigorous Marine Stewardship Council Chain of Custody certification process – as a result, the Restaurant Associates managed Café Harbourview at Taronga Zoo was the first restaurant in the eastern states to be able to use the blue MSC ecolabel on its menus to identify MSC certified products, and to demonstrate its commitment to sustainable seafood sourcing.
As the market leader in contract food and support services in Australia, Compass is committed to setting the highest standards for responsible business practices; integral to this is the responsible sourcing of seafood.
MSC maintains the most widely respected and accepted global standard for the certification of wild capture seafood. Fisheries that meet the MSC standard have proven that; their target stock is healthy and viable, they cause minimal impact on the ecosystem and surrounding environment, and they have effective management systems.
