Use the blue MSC label

Show your customers your fish comes from a sustainable source by using the MSC label. Find out how to show your commitment to certified sustainable seafood.


The benefits

  1. Seafood with the blue MSC label can be traced back to a sustainable source. Independent surveillance audits and DNA testing prove this.
  2. The blue MSC label represents the world’s most recognised and market-leading seafood certification scheme as endorsed by GSSI and the UN FAO.
  3. Research shows consumers most trust scientists and NGOs to tackle ocean health and independent certification increases consumer trust in brands.
