LP Foods Makes Seafood Sourcing Public on Ocean Disclosure Project
Processor and exporter LP Foods Pte Ltd has become the latest company to participate in the Ocean Disclosure Project (ODP).
Based in Singapore and Vietnam, LP Foods is one of the first seafood suppliers in Southeast Asia to voluntarily disclose its seafood sourcing through the ODP by sharing information about the origins of its shrimp, octopus, and fish products. The company has published an ODP profile containing a list of its seafood sources alongside information on the country of origin, certification and ratings, and environmental impact of production.
On joining the ODP, an LP Foods representative said, "We are proud to be one of the first Southeast Asian companies to disclose farmed and wild caught seafood sourcing information through the ODP platform. LP Foods is committed to transparency and to improving our sourcing. We endeavor to provide more sustainable products in the marketplace to help ensure sustainable consumption and product quality."
Tania Woodcock, Project Manager for the ODP said, "We are pleased to welcome LP Foods to the Ocean Disclosure Project. By becoming one of the first companies in Southeast Asia to participate in the ODP, LP Foods has shown strong leadership and a commitment to transparency in seafood."
Sustainable Fisheries Partnership started the ODP in 2015 to provide a valuable information resource for responsible investors, seafood consumers, and others interested in sustainable seafood. To date, 37 other companies including retailers, suppliers, and aquaculture feed manufacturers from around the world have participated. Other new participants this year have included seafood suppliers Thai Union Group and Hilton Seafood UK.
