The MSC works closely with commercial partners to build awareness in the industry and with consumers, and to increase the value of the MSC ecolabel to our partners
Since February 2008, MSC have worked with the internationally-renowned agency Saatchi & Saatchi X who have generously offered pro bono support to improve consumer awareness and recognition of the MSC ecolabel. To achieve this we regularly run joint-marketing initiative that are designed to increase awareness of the MSC program at the same time as enhancing the sustainability credentials of seafood brands and retailers.
Our aims are to
• Generate fresh ideas and new materials for marketing activity
• Improve understanding of the MSC program
• Enhance the sustainability credentials of our partners
• Make MSC-labelled products important to shoppers
• Improve our partners' sales and the demand for MSC-labelled seafood.
