At the Heart of what we do: Sustainable Fishing & Farming

Our commitment to sustainability is not just a policy; it’s a core value that shapes every aspect of our operations. In a world where the health of our oceans is increasingly under threat, sustainable fishing practices are no longer optional—they are essential. At Reach Food Group, we have been supplying our clients in the UK, UAE, Europe and beyond with the very best sustainably sourced fish and seafood that the ocean has to offer. 

Why Sustainable Fishing Matters

Sustainable fishing ensures that fish populations are harvested at a rate where they can replenish, thereby preventing overfishing, preserving ecosystems, and sustaining the livelihoods of communities that depend on marine resources. This approach not only contributes to environmental conservation but also guarantees the premium quality of seafood that reaches our chefs’ tables across the globe.

Our Commitment to Sustainability 

At Reach, we pride ourselves on partnering with suppliers and producers whose ethos mirrors our own, that’s why the majority of our suppliers boast accreditations for sustainable practices (such as MSC-certified fisheries). From Scottish Sea Farms’ sustainably sourced salmon to Lumina Lamb’s comprehensive approach towards their livestock and land, we are steadfast in our mission to lead by example by working with sustainable suppliers.

Star Suppliers for Sustainability

KINGFISH ZEELAND:

With their pioneering onshore nature reserve, Kingfish Zeeland are leading the charge for sustainability at the very source in the world of seafood supply. As the sole ASC & BAP certified source of Yellowtail, their commitment to environmental stewardship, animal welfare, and consumer safety sets a new standard for the industry. Employing revolutionary techniques such as aquaponics, renewable energy, and advanced bio-security measures, Kingfish Zeeland not only ensures the well-being of their fish but also actively contributes to the preservation of marine biodiversity.

SAPMER:

Venturing into the tumultuous and icy realms of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands, SAPMER has carved out a niche as a custodian of the ocean’s rarest treasures. Authorized to fish for Chilean Seabass, a task encumbered by stringent regulations and strict quotas, SAPMER’s commitment to sustainable fishing practices is impressive. With the prestigious Marine Stewardship Council certification under their belt, they not only ensure the preservation of the Patagonian Toothfish but also maintain the delicate balance of marine ecosystems.

Certifications: Our Badge of Honour

Our adherence to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) Chain of Custody Certifications underscores our commitment to responsible seafood production, processing, and sale. These certifications, recognised as the gold standard globally, ensure that our seafood is not only of premium quality but also sustainably sourced and traceable throughout the entire supply chain. Additionally, our ISO 22000-2005 certification across our logistical operations reinforces our commitment to traceability and quality, from catch to customer. By maintaining these certifications across our facilities and striving to achieve them for new operations within their inaugural year, we set a benchmark for excellence in sustainability.

As we expand our services and look to work with new suppliers across the globe, we continue to put sustainable practices at the very heart of what we do. Through conscientious sourcing and a steadfast commitment to sustainability, we can make a difference.
