Thai Union donates US$30,411 worth of seafood products to COVID-19 frontliners
The Thai Union Group PCL has donated 1 million baht (US$30,411) worth of SEALECT and FISHO products to support the Thai government's medical teams who are in the frontline battling the global spread of coronavirus.
The leading seafood company delivered more than 25,000 cans of tuna, sardines and mackerel and 8,000 packs of FISHO snacks to the Ministry of Public Health. These were to be distributed to hospitals and related support units dealing with the coronavirus and the disease it causes, COVID-19.
Meanwhile, Thai Union has become the first food producer and Thailand-listed company to join EP100, a Climate Group global initiative on smarter energy use.
As part of the company's strategy to tackle climate change and its impact on the world's oceans, Thai Union is aiming to double its energy productivity by 2041, from a 2016 baseline.
Last year, Thai Union was ranked No. 1 on the inaugural Seafood Stewardship Index (SSI), which assessed the contribution of the world's 30 largest seafood companies to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
