Can you help me with NGO recommendations, certifications, and ecolabels?
Absolutely. I'm well versed in MSC, ASC, RFM, BAP, and Fair Trade standards as well as FishWise, OceanWise, and WWF recommendations from MBAQ assessments. Reach out for more targeted help.
Can you build/manage a FIP?
Yes I can. I have experience successfully resurrecting inactive or failing FIPs, as well as beginning new ones. Contact me to discuss the fisheries that need to meet your sustainability requirements.
What about social/labor issues?
The right type of engagement goes a long way. Aside from coordinating social audits required by various customers, I have also represented companies and participated in international social/labor initiatives. Let's definitely connect if you're daunted by the current discourse.
My internal software needs to accommodate the traceability demand. What do I do?
I have worked countless hours with seafood companies' IT personnel to design, jerry-rig, or bridge software systems in order to have the correct sustainability attributes track out the door. Reach out to relay your specific technical challenges.
