POSTELSIA MANAGES THE JAMES BEARD FOUNDATION’S SMART CATCH PROGRAM, RECOGNIZING IMPROVEMENTS IN SEAFOOD PROCUREMENT BY CHEFS AND DISTRIBUTORS.
This program includes:
Assessing restaurants’ seafood purchases
Assessing distributors’ products
Providing guidance for products that meet the program’s standards
Educating chefs about sustainable seafood issues
The Smart Catch program provides training and support to chefs so they can serve seafood that is produced in sustainable ways. By becoming a Smart Catch Leader and earning the Smart Catch seal, chefs give consumers a simple way to identify and support restaurants that are working to protect our oceans.
Companies that work further up the supply chain are equally important in the sustainable sourcing landscape. Postelsia works with seafood distributors and producers in a variety of ways to support their participation in Smart Catch by connecting chefs to Smart Catch approved seafood.
