Additional body

Formed to tackle the issues of human rights, environmental degradation and Illegal, Unreported & Unregulated (IUU) fishing, the Seafood Task Force is driving a comprehensive oversight & continuous improvement programme that uses business leverage to effect positive change in global shrimp and tuna supply chains.

Our programme helps members work together to meet international social and environmental standards. And it helps them comply with international trading legislation and growing due diligence requirements.

The Seafood Task Force is about taking urgent action, not letting perfection get in the way of progress and making things happen.

Hear what our members have to say about STF from across the supply chain.

Ultimately, the Seafood Task Force is creating the conditions for global companies buying shrimp and tuna products to trade with confidence.

“What’s unique about STF is they are solving issues on the ground ... That’s one of the main reasons Ahold Delhaize is really engaged and supportive”
