The National Restaurant Association is holding a webinar to help operators better understand how the fish they serve is procured.
Did you know that nearly 90 percent of seafood consumed in the United States is imported with little supply-chain transparency?
Because there isn’t a lot of information on how it’s caught, operators know little about the sourcing of the fish they serve and whether or not the employees hired to catch it were treated properly and paid fairly.
A 2015 State Department report found endemic labor problems in the global supply chains of agriculture, fishing and aquaculture.
To help operators better understand the issue, we’re holding a webinar explaining how the fish they serve is procured.
Join us June 20 at 2 p.m. EST for “Don’t get hooked by illegal fishing practices,”hosted by the National Restaurant Association with special guest speakers from The Cheesecake Factory, Liberty Asia and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The webinar will focus on:
- How and why the Cheesecake Factory took on this issue
- Where the problem of forced labor exists
- How and why it still occurs
- How your brand could get hurt
- How you can work with suppliers to minimize your risk
The free, 1-hour program will help you navigate the safe purchase of seafood so you can avoid any reputational risk. Register today.
