Mission and Vision
The mission of Ocean Beauty Seafoods LLC. is to deliver the safest and highest quality sustainable seafood products to the world. Their goal is to diversify and grow their global business while providing the best possible collaborative environment for our employees, customers, suppliers, and business partners. They also strive to manage a responsible, caring, and sustainable company that works to ensure the economic and social health of the communities in which they operate. Ocean Beauty Seafoods LLC. takes their ability to produce food that is safe and wholesome very seriously and is fully accountable for all aspects of their business and believes a long-term approach is the most responsible way to operate.
Ocean Beauty Seafoods believes that seafood sustainability programs are valid only to the extent that they are measured against internationally recognized scientific standards. The application of these standards must be through a transparent public process that considers the impact of sustainability policies on human communities and does not add unnecessary costs. This is the basis of Ocean Beauty’s sustainability policy. It can be stated as adhering to the following six principles:
- Internationally recognized standards are the only acceptable basis of sustainability efforts.
- Peer‐reviewed science is central to all meaningful standards.
- Sustainability efforts must be measurable against those standards.
- Policy management must be public and transparent.
- Human community welfare must be included in all sustainability policies.
- Incremental costs specific to sustainability efforts should be borne only when absolutely necessary to implement a program consistent with the above five principles.
Ocean Beauty supports all sustainability efforts that are consistent with these six principles.
