Briefing report on seafood for ASEAN retailers and hotel groups
Seafood plays a significant role in the lives of millions. However, the value chain is corrupt with environmental destruction, unjust treatment of local communities and at times, human rights abuses. Hotel groups and retailers hold a unique position to utilise their influence and purchasing power to make positive changes that can cascade throughout the seafood value chain. This report serves as an introduction to the context of seafood sustainability in the ASEAN region, including risks, the business case to address smallholders and women in procurement strategy, and the state of corporate disclosure from hotels and retailers.
