the public opinion

PROTECTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT

Official Web Site: the fishing zones indicated by the FAO are respected for the sustainability of the marine life. All phases of production of tuna are held to Olbia, starting from whole fish, to valorize the Italian craftsmanship. The establishment uses 100% of energy from renewable sources.1

External sources: It avoids destructive fishing methods, as the trotlines, preferring sustainable fisheries, such as cane from small local fleets in 30% of its products. It has precise limits to avoid tuna caught by surrounding nets with FAD (fish aggregation device), but it must still work on the full fish tracking methods.2

RESPECT FOR WORKERS

Official Web Site: For more than 5 years the company obtains the SA8000 certification for the monitoring of production and suppliers on the basis of security policies and social responsibility. It adopts an ethics code that must also be respected by suppliers.1

TRACEABILITY

External sources: There is an ad hoc site where you can discover the origin of the products, while the label is one of the most complete: common and scientific name of the species, provenance, fishing method that is used, allows the consumers to make a choice, but it needs clearness of how to use the FAD.2
