IPNLF names first UK foodservice supplier member

16 Aug 2016

The International Pole & Line Foundation (IPNLF) has announced that Caterers Choice has become the first company focussed on the UK foodservice sector to be named a member of the association.

Incorporated in 1988, family-owned Caterers Choice is one of the United Kingdom’s leading importers and distributors of canned and ambient products to the UK foodservice and manufacturing markets. Working with many of the most trusted high street brands, the company is a key advocate for the Indonesian pole-and-line industry and for the sustainable sourcing of tuna.

Caterers Choice has become the 36th Member of IPNLF. With tuna being a key commodity within the company’s portfolio from the outset, it actively encourages best practice with regards to environmental issues and only works with canneries that are proactive in reducing their impact on the world’s ecosystems.

“Our membership of the International Pole & Line Foundation not only validates Caterers Choice’s long-term commitment to helping deliver management measures that can effectively safeguard the future of global tuna stocks and those communities that are reliant upon them, it also helps provide some important environmental and social assurances that our customers and end consumers can buy into,” says Steve Farmiloe, senior trading manager at Caterers Choice.

IPNLF helps ensure the demand for one-by-one caught tuna can be met without compromising the sustainability of the fisheries, while at the same time providing much-needed support for fishing communities who are heavily reliant upon those stocks.
