Cornelis Vrolijk joins GSSI
Dutch fisheries group Cornelis Vrolijk has joined the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative (GSSI) as a Funding Partner. Established in 1880, Cornelis Vrolijk is an internationally-operated family business, active in the catch, farm, process and trade of fish and shrimp.
â€˜Cornelis Vrolijk is happy to partner with GSSI,â€™ said Vrolijk corporate social responsibility manager Aukje Coers. â€˜We believe GSSI plays an important role in the development and recognition of clear and consistent certification standards.â€™
GSSI managing director Herman Wisse commented that as a family business, focusing on responsible fishing practices with a long term-perspective and maintaining healthy fish stocks is integral to Cornelis Vrolijk's business operations.
â€˜This approach is synonymous with our global non-competitive effort towards more sustainable seafood for everyone,â€™ he said.
â€˜As Herman pointed out, responsible fishing operations are very important for us,â€™ Aukje Coers added.
â€˜We depend on the ocean and it is our job to sustainably catch the so-called â€˜surplusâ€™. This way, we can provide seafood to consumers worldwide today, while ensuring food security for future generations.â€™
