Sustainability policyRoyal Hawaiian Seafood (RHS) believes that quality seafood should not only be fresh and taste great, but should also be low in contaminants and harvested in an ecologically responsible way. That's why RHS has created a safety and sustainability program, to provide seafood that is safe, sustainable and traceable. RHS is committed to developing and promoting sustainable fisheries in order to ensure the long term viability of sustainable seafood.
RHS brings vision, dedication, and high ethical standards to their pursuit of leadership in sustainability and is committed to the assessment of the environmental impacts associated with their activities and services, and will track measures of progress.
RHS commits to leadership in sustainability in the following areas:
Research and educationRHS will function as a source for the most current environmental research and will use our capability as a distributor to educate individuals throughout the supply chain and in the community on sustainability issues. RHS is also dedicated to supporting interdisciplinary environmental research, disseminating information, increasing awareness of environmental issues, and enhancing environmental educational offerings through regular lecture series.
In order to increase transparency and bring awareness to sustainability issues around fisheries, RHS ranks all their products according to the sustainability recommendations published by the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program.
TraceabilityIn order to ensure integrity and sustainability of all products, RHS will trace products from source to sale.
RHS commits to being a proactive and positive force for change throughout the entire supply chain and within its surrounding community. Environmental sustainability will be at the forefront of all business decisions and actions. Through the creation of a strategic distributor alliance, RHS helps share resources and information and leverage buying power to develop and promote sustainable fisheries. RHS has also created the Fishery Improvement and Sustainable Harvest (FISH) Fund to financially support fishery improvement projects and non-profit organizations working to improve marine ecosystems.
