In October 2021, SFP and IFFO (The Marine Ingredients Organization) announced the launch of the global roundtable on marine ingredients. The roundtable will support pre-competitive efforts by members to catalyze and support fishery improvement projects (FIPs), better understand and address urgent social issues and enhance social responsibility, and explore other strategies to improve the availability of sustainable marine ingredients.
Given the global nature of trade in fishmeal and oil, SFP is phasing out three existing regional reduction fisheries SRs – the Asian Reduction Fisheries SR, the Latin American Reduction Fisheries SR, and the European Sustainable Fishmeal SR – to build a global roundtable that also captures other important regions, such as Northwest Africa.
In addition, we are extending our reach to the entire marine ingredients supply chain. The new roundtable will adopt a whole value chain approach, engaging a variety of users of marine ingredients, including producers of pet food, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, and other products, and involving key supply chain actors, including producers, processors, trade associations, and certification standards.
