Oceanfood Sales is focused on providing the best seafood products on the market. Understanding the need for high environmental responsibility standards, we strive to build strong relationships with top producers and distributors who share our values regarding responsibility and quality.

Food Source Awareness

Food Provenance is the knowledge of where food originates, and how it is harvested, processed, and packaged. We work closely with our partners and can ensure the food provenance of our products. We frequently visit our trade partners, and personally inspect the facilities and sources of our producers.

Environmental Sustainability

We work with several sustainability-focused NGOs to further ensure that our brands and partners are adhering to processes that are deemed environmentally responsible. Sustainable practices help ensure a healthy ocean environment.

The Green Fish Label

The Green Fish

We recognize that there is a lack of clarity around environmental and food safe labeling, and that different stakeholders create their own labels. Oceanfoods Sales has made it easier for operators and consumers to identify food that has been sourced responsibly and processed in a way that ensures it is safe for consumption.

The Green Fish label is a single seal of sustainability, indicating that one or more of the following organizations or programs has rated the product favourably.
