SFP is pleased to announce its newest corporate partner, Spain’s Nueva Pescanova Group.

The company, which dates back more than 50 years, operates in more than two dozen countries worldwide, and looks forward to working with SFP to improve the sustainability of its supply chain, using various improvement projects and data management tools.

“Working together with SFP is an important step that will help us to be more transparent and contribute more actively in improving the conservation of resources and the rationalization of fishing, a commitment that has been present in the DNA of our company for almost six decades,” said Juanjo De la Cerda, Corporate Director of R&D, Quality and Sustainability of the Nueva Pescanova Group.

Nueva Pescanova has always had a strong interest in sustainability. Among its accomplishments, the company has established its own sustainable fishing certificate, audited by Bureau Veritas for hake catches in Namibia. 

“Nueva Pescanova has a history in the seafood industry in Spain and globally,” said Pedro Ferreiro, SFP’s Deputy Director, Buyer Engagement. “We are certain that Pescanova’s engagement will inspire other companies worldwide to follow its lead toward a more sustainable future.”

About SFP:

Founded in 2006, the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Foundation – known as Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) – is a nonprofit organization dedicated to rebuilding depleted fish stocks and reducing the environmental and social impacts of fishing and fish farming through engaging fishery stakeholders (communities, NGOs, government, etc.) and seafood businesses in every part of the supply chain. The organization works to improve fisheries through fishery improvement projects (FIPs) and aquaculture improvement projects (AIPs), which are multi-stakeholder bodies that seek to advance the sustainability of fishing and fish farming operations. SFP also supports Supply Chain Roundtables, which allow seafood suppliers to work in a pre-competitive environment to promote improvement throughout the supply chain.
