For the second year running, Direct Seafoods has been awarded the Marine Stewardship Council Award for Fresh Fish Foodservice Supplier of the Year.

Held yesterday evening in Aberdeen for its ninth year, the MSC awards celebrate the outstanding achievements and performances in sustainable fishing and seafood across the entire UK business spectrum.

Attended by a large number of industry members and streamed to many more, the award is considered of the highest regard across fresh fish foodservice and reflects the ultimate recognition to individuals and teams.

Judged by the MSC, the award is given to a supplier who has supported their customers in identifying new MSC products and species for restaurant businesses, whilst demonstrating commitment to driving progress of certified sustainable seafood within the UK foodservice sector.

Laky Zervudachi, who has held the role of Direct Seafoods Director of Sustainability for more than 15 years, said:

“We’re delighted to have won this award for a second consecutive year. I’m really proud of our team and their achievements and this award is testament to their hard work and commitment, despite another challenging year for the industry.

“The MSC Award recognises our decision to put sustainability at the heart of our business. We offer one of the largest ranges of MSC certified products, along with extensive customer support including menu planning, recipe inspiration and training.

“Sourcing fish responsibly is paramount to us and we work closely with both our mainstream and specialist fish suppliers, believing passionately in promoting the most sustainable products available to our customers.”
