  (UNITED STATES, 8/29/2022)

As part of its continued commitment to sustainability, Thai Union and Chicken of the Sea Frozen Foods are announcing an alliance in North America with leading plant-based seafood brand, The ISH Food Company. The up-and-coming brand is leading change in communities globally to provide a regenerative, nutritious food system.

"We are excited to expand our reach within the alternative protein space through this alliance with The ISH Food Company," said Maarten Geraets, Thai Union Managing Director for Alternative Proteins.

"Our corporate venture business arm has been working closely with innovative alternative protein start-ups as we increase our attention and investment in sustainable seafood alternatives. As the #1 distributor of frozen shrimp and pasteurized crab meat in North America, we have expansive expertise in the seafood category that we are eager to leverage in this new market."

This alliance will leverage relevant Thai Union and Chicken of the Sea Frozen Foods marketing and distribution channels to invest in the sustainable seafood space and ensure alternative seafood protein options are available to new audiences at an affordable price point.

The announcement is part of Thai Union's global SeaChange® commitment, which includes measurable steps to foster sustainable solutions across their business.

The ISH Food Company is a certified B-Corp.

Since 2016, Thai Union has placed a great deal of focus on developing its SeaChange® sustainability strategy, earning the company a first-place spot on the Seafood Stewardship Index two years in a row.

Increasingly, sustainability has become a primary concern for many seafood consumers. In a recent survey executed by Chicken of the Sea Frozen Foods and leading market research consultancy Wakefield Research, grocery and foodservice executives and buyers were surprised to receive requests for plant-based (35%) and lab-grown (31%) seafood products this year.2

With a growing consumer desire for alternative seafood products, this alliance was the logical next step, as the category works to provide increased access to those looking for innovative seafood solutions and great-tasting alternatives.

"As a global entity, Thai Union acknowledges that a diverse range of healthy and nutritious proteins is essential to meeting future population demands in a sustainable manner, whilst increasing food security," said Geraets.

The alliance with The ISH Food Company was a natural fit for both brands, particularly given the alternative protein brand's environmental-first philosophy. The ISH Food Company, a certified B Corporation, was established in 2020 to deliver Innovative, Sustainable, Healthy, and deliciously disruptive plant-based foods to every plate worldwide, starting with plant-based seafood.

From consumers' nutrition to growers' financial health to products' carbon footprints, The ISH Food Company's ultimate goal is to create a system that restores and is in balance with the needs of the earth. In 2022, the company launched its flagship product, Shrimpish®, which is now available at select colleges, universities and restaurants nationwide, with plans to expand offerings to include SalmonishTM, CodishTM, CrabishTM, LobsterishTM, and other portfolio complements.

"We have a big mission, and we can't do it alone, which makes this collaboration in North America even more important," said Bernard David, ISH Founder and CEO. "Consumer demand for healthy, nutritious, and sustainable food sources is accelerating as individuals increasingly make the connection between the food they eat and the climate crisis. Our plant-based seafood is crafted with environmental impact top of mind, delivering on taste, texture, nutrition, and planetary health. We're grateful for this partnership with Thai Union and Chicken of the Sea Frozen Foods as we work together to help transform food and agriculture into a regenerative, nutritious, and healthy system."
