Dardanel Launches Line Of FOS Certified Tuna

Dardanel Önentaþ Gýda San. A.Þ., the major canned and seafood producer in Turkey, has obtained Friend of the Sea certification for its entire tuna and clams product line.



Following a thorough third party traceability audit, Dardanel has demonstrated control over its chain of custody and all its product lines are now ready to carry the Friend of the Sea ecolabel.

Dardanel produces mainly canned tuna, tuna salads, tuna in pouches and jars, canned mackerel, sardines and anchovies.

Dardanel canned tuna will originate only from approved Friend of the Sea fleets, targeting not overexploited stocks and carrying onboard observers to verify compliance to their sustainable fisheries policies.

"We hope that new fleets will accept to undergo Friend of the Sea strict third party audits and provide evidence of compliance with sustainable fishing policies."

"The Turkish and European consumers in general are more and more demanding for sustainability and Dardanel's own company policy has always given highest relevance to environmental conservation and respect for marine habitat," added Mr. Onen.
