Our Partners

MSC Chain of Custody Partners

MSC partners are integral to the success of the MSC program and to providing millions of North Americans access to sustainable, traceable seafood. As the most-recognized global, wild fishery certification to offer ocean to plate traceability through supply chain certification – which is assessed by independent, third-party auditors – the MSC sustainability Standard ensures that MSC certified seafood is kept separate from other seafood, which guarantees its certified sustainable origin.

Currently, over 400 commercial partners carry the Chain of Custody certification in North America and more than 38,000 sites, including supermarket chains, restaurants, fishmongers, and hotels are certified to use the MSC blue fish label.

This webpage includes some* of our North American partners whose brands and products support a healthy ocean, so you can feel good about supporting these companies.

We’re proud to work with all our partners because keeping our oceans healthy and full of fish is a global effort. The companies listed here are leaders in seafood sustainability, and we encourage you to look for the MSC blue fish label in your grocery stores, fish markets, restaurants, and wherever you purchase seafood products for more brands and companies that are committed to seafood sustainability.

More about Traceability

Traceability is the ability to trace a product at each step along the supply chain all the way back to its point of origin. It goes hand-in-hand with sustainability as the best mechanism to prevent fraud and illegal products from entering the supply chain. It helps protect consumers and the efforts of everyone working hard to keep our oceans healthy.
