WHAT: Seafish will be presenting and holding an open forum for its 2015-2018 Corporate Plan at an engagement event held in Grimsby for industry and media as a part of a series of events being held across the UK.

WHEN: 20th July 2015, 6.30pm – 8.30pm

WHERE: Humber Royal Hotel, Littlecoates Road, Grimsby, DN34 4LX

RSVP: Denise Fraser, 0131 524 8656, denise.fraser@seafish.co.uk

The Plan promises to continue the focus on getting more people eating more fish more often and developing projects which support the reputation of the industry and providing the data and information industry needs for effective decision-making.

The programme of work has been developed in partnership with the organisation’s three Industry Sector Panels, which represent the domestic and exporter, importer and processing and consumer and supply chain sectors of the seafood industry. As with the previous Corporate Plan, Panel members have helped prioritise the key issues, identify areas of focus and allocate resources accordingly.

Seafish Chief Executive Paul Williams commented:

Seafish sits at the heart of the seafood industry, bringing all sectors together in support of a shared agenda. In this new Plan, we are building on the work delivered over the past three years with a programme of work that reflects real world opportunities and challenges, and meets the collective aspirations of our stakeholders.

Whilst the main focus of our work has remained unchanged, one message came back loud and clear from our industry colleagues and that is the requirement to address all elements of responsible sourcing, both ethical and environmental. This commitment is marked by an update to our mission statement, which now seeks to deliver ‘a profitable, sustainable and socially responsible future for the industry.

As part of Seafish’s commitment to delivering the work in partnership with stakeholders, a series of Corporate Plan events will be held across the UK this summer for industry and media to attend. As part of this roadshow an event will be held in Grimsby on Wednesday 20th July at the Humber Royal Hotel from 6.30pm – 8.30pm. Members of the Seafish Executive, Sector Panels and Board will be on hand to present the key points of the Plan and answer any questions.

Full details of the event and how to sign up to attend can be found on the Events page on the Seafish website.
