Recent Western Cape Business News
CAPE TOWN-based Lusitania Food Products has partnered with Fish on Line, as a preferred supplier of quality fish and seafood.
“This alliance will assist the restaurant, hotel and catering sectors, which anticipate a boom in business as the World Cup 2010 approaches,” says Mary Lunde, Lusitania’s general manager. “Seafood is a popular choice on any menu and has fast become one of the most traded commodities in the world.”
“Lusitania is committed to building partnerships with key suppliers which share the company’s concerns for sustainability in the fishing industry. Fish on Line’s local and international accreditations mean that all fish and seafood is legally caught and traded,” Lunde says.
Fish on Line is a local fish and seafood supplier with Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) approval, which is the world’s leading certification and ecolabelling programme for sustainable seafood. All MSC-labelled seafood comes from and can be traced back to a sustainable fishery.
Fish on Line is also a Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative (SASSI) participant. This initiative, which was launched in November 2004, informs and educates all players in the seafood trade - including wholesalers, restaurateurs and seafood lovers – about marine conservation issues.
