“Chicken of the Sea is focused on sustainability and corporate social responsibility initiatives,” said Bryan Rosenberg, President and CEO at Chicken of the Sea Frozen Foods. “Our parent company, Thai Union Group, is a leading sustainability driven company in the global marketplace, and we look forward to further pursuing that commitment in the lobster industry.”

According to Mr. Rosenberg, the company’s desire to join an open group dedicated to a sustainable lobster fishery and ecosystem sustainability inspired COSFF to apply for MCSLA membership.

“Maine lobster is known internationally as an iconic species that exemplifies high quality, sustainable seafood,” stated Craig A. Rief, President of the Maine Certified Sustainable Lobster Association. “Membership in the MCSLA shows that an organization has the highest standards of commitment to sustainability in our industry, and we are delighted to welcome Chicken of the Sea as a new member.”

The Association is currently undergoing Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) ecolabel certification and expects to complete the process by November 2015. Once certified, any member company within MSC’s Chain of Certification may affix the MSC ecolabel to their products at any time, including retroactively from up to six months prior to certification.

MCSLA is now accepting new members, and several additional companies are in the process of applying. Membership in the Association is easy to achieve and available to any member of the Maine lobster industry who meets the basic eligibility requirements. MCSLA’s growing membership base keeps membership costs low and affordable.
