The leader in salmon distribution in Western Canada has undergone chain of custody audit and has been approved as a supplier of Friend of the Sea salmon from sustainable fisheries and stocks compliant with the project’s criteria.
Albion Fishery, founded in 1963, is the largest seafood distributor in Western Canada with a customer base of over 1.000 clients comprising restaurants, retailers and broadline distributors in North America and Europe.
“We believe our association with “Friend of the Sea” and their sustainability initiatives increases the value of the Canadian Salmon products we supply” remarks Guy Dean – Albion Corporate Purchasing Manager.
“Albion’s participation will widen greatly the number and range of BC salmon products which will potentially carry the Friend of the Sea sustainability label.” comments Paolo Bray, Director of Friend of the Sea “We expect several other Canadian producers to request Friend of the Sea certification in the next few months.”
Friend of the Sea is an international non-profit certification scheme for products from sustainable fisheries and aquaculture. Certified products are fished from not overexploited nor IUCN Redlisted stocks and with selective methods which do not impact the seabed.
