|John West Australia Leads 2017 Sustainability Canned Tuna Ranking|
|April 19, 2017|
It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that we share with you the latest Greenpeace Canned Tuna Ranking in Australia, where our partner John West ranked as #2 out of 10 brands assessed. The ranking was based on policy and actions against destructive fishing practices, mismanagement, human rights abuses, and wasteful ‘bycatch’ that kills untargeted species such as sharks, turtles and a range of endangered marine life. Congratulations John West, way to go!
“We are extremely proud to count with John West / Simplot as a trusted and highly influential partner in the Australian market. Their commitment towards tuna sustainability and support to the PNA nations has been exceptional. We applaud John West for their consistent and continuous commitment to source sustainable MSC certified tuna from the PNA countries, all carrying the Pacifical logo, and congratulate them on the well-deserved ranking received this week” – Says Henk Brus, Managing Director at Pacifical.
