ANNOUNCEMENT: World Oceans Deal

7 June, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 30 June, 2023 @ 5:00 pm EDT

What a historic achievement on this World Ocean Day! Three major Dutch caterers, Vermaat, Albron, and Sodexo, have now entered into a World Oceans Deal with the World Wildlife Fund Netherlands and Good Fish. This achievement builds upon the initial signing of the deal by Vermaat and Albron back in 2021. With Sodexo joining them today, more than 1500 restaurants will cease serving RED fish, which are known to be caught with significant bycatch, subjected to illegal poaching, and heavily overfished or fish often contribute to high CO2 emissions.
