We're really proud to have won Fresh Foodservice Wholesaler of the Year at the Marine Stewardship Council UK's 2019 Awards. This is only the 2nd time this award has been given, making it 2 wins out of 2 for our team at M&J.
The annual MSC awards are an opportunity to celebrate the hard work of those who are safeguarding seafood supplies for current and future generations. MSC award winners play a crucial role in transforming the UK seafood market into a sustainable one by supporting by offering an ever growing choice of sustainable seafood to UK customers.
We were the first to offer MSC products back in 2002 and we still have the largest, and ever growing, range in UK foodservice today. With almost 200 products now available our MSC range includes recently certified Breaded Whitebait, new defrosted Japanese Scallops and rope grown Scottish Mussels.
Our Senior Category Manager, Sarah Phillips added: “Making the more sustainable choices is not just a matter of doing the right thing for the future of our seas, it’s about doing the right thing for our customers. We are totally committed to working closely with our suppliers to ensure we sell only the best of the world’s catch from well-managed fisheries. Making sustainable menu choices can be complicated, but we are dedicated to making it easy for chefs to choose the most sustainable fish and seafood so that we can all play our part. Our Simply Sustainable List includes over 300 products that are either MSC or ASC certified or rated 1-3 by the MCS. When they buy from this list, chefs can have confidence that they are making responsible choices. ”
