Over the course of year 2017, we have been actively preparing and are excited to finally announce that in December 2017, we have officially entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Seafood Savers; a sustainable seafood initiative under WWF-Indonesia – Please click on the link below for our Seafood Savers Membership information (http://www.seafoodsavers.org/en/anggota/#anggota)

Seafood Savers aims to promote sustainable fishery activities through joint efforts among various stakeholders in the Indonesian fishery industry. They support national policies that encourages development in local sustainable fisheries.

Seafood Savers refers to CCRF (Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries) FAO 1995 standards which are generated into ecolabel certification, Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) for fisheries and Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) for aquaculture. MSC and ASC are third-party certification type, initiated by WWF and its partners which aimed at setting up the maximum sustainable standards in fishing practices.

Together with Seafood Savers vision, Natura Seafood is committed to promote the prosperity of local fishery communities.

Our seafood is processed under the guidance of Good Manufacturing Practice (“GMP”) and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (“HACCP”) for international food safety standards.

We would like our customers to enjoy locally sourced, natural (Non-GMO), wild caught, sustainable, export quality seafood at affordable prices unlike what they can get right now in the local market!

His true passion lies on rural fishery development projects which focuses on creating meaningful impacts through improving economic prosperity of the Eastern Indonesian fishery communities.
