Sustainability at Thai Union

Our approach to sustainability

Changing Seafood for Good

As a global seafood leader, we have a responsibility to set the standard for social, environmental and economic performance across our operations and into our supply chains.

Recognizing this responsibility to show leadership, we heeded our stakeholders’ calls with SeaChange®, Thai Union’s sustainability strategy with measurable commitments to delivering real, lasting changes in the way we operate.


SeaChange® is an integrated plan of initiatives, organized into four programs, to drive meaningful improvements across the entire global seafood industry.

Our Sustainability Objectives

These can be summarized in three overarching aims:

Our Tuna Commitment

Tuna is a highly nutritious and extremely versatile source of protein for millions of people globally.

Fish accounts for nearly 17% of global protein consumption, and in fact more than four million metric tons of tuna is caught every year around the world for consumption. It’s no surprise then that tuna features so widely in Thai Union’s product range.

We use a range of tuna species across our various brands – Skipjack, Yellowfin, Albacore and Bigeye – all of which are wild caught in the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic Oceans.

Thai Union is committed to sourcing 100% of our branded tuna from fisheries that are either Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified, or engaged in Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs) to move them towards MSC certification.
