Regal Springs’ WE CARE program – more than environmental sustainability.
September 28, 2020
Regal Springs has long been known for its exceptional tilapia products, which it currently grows in farms in Mexico, Honduras, and Indonesia. The WE CARE program – which represents an investment of USD 3 million – was, in part, created to maintain a high level of quality across all of the company’s production facilities.
However, the program is much more than a quality or environmental sustainability push. The name itself is a clue to the company’s broader outlook on the next few years of policy, and how it plans to create an all-encompassing program covering issues from every angle.
“When we say it’s the world’s first totally integrated sustainability program, this genuinely is a 360-degree sustainability program,” Peter Hajipieris, the global advisor for corporate social responsibility, sustainability, and external affairs for Regal Springs, told SeafoodSource during the 2019 Seafood Expo North America.
