If you’re selling a seafood supplement such as fish oil, it may be helpful to market a product with the MSC label or get the MSC certification. This is a certification offered by SCS Global Services, a third-party company that emphasizes environmental-friendly practices, sustainable fishing, and food safety.
The MSC label shows your customers that your products are sustainable. More consumers are aware of the overfishing problem that our world is currently facing. Fish stocks are being depleted all over the world, so it’s important to ensure that they purchase from companies that engage in sustainable practices.
The MSC certification is given to companies that maintain sustainable fishing practices, maintain the integrity of the ecosystem, and properly manage the ecosystem. This means that certification is only given to companies that help maintain fish stock in the waters they fish.
In addition, it also means that you are fishing without methods that damage the ecosystem and ensure that proper care is given to maintain a healthy marine ecosystem. SCS Global Services provides certification based on their standards and their seafood safety auditing program. An example of a company that has the MSC certification is Bumble Bee Seafoods, known for its tuna fish products.
Having a product with the MSC certification shows environmentally-minded consumers that your products are something that they can support. It also gives your existing customers peace of mind that they are doing business with a company that is responsible and does not put profits over the well-being of the planet.
