Sustainably sourcing seafood makes smart business sense

Overwaitea Food Group (OFG) president Steve van der Leest shares a business leadership story on how his company is supporting healthy oceans. One year ago, OFG partnered with SeaChoice to help make the shift towards providing more sustainable seafood options.

As a food provider for families, OFG recognizes how its business decisions today will affect the health of the oceans tomorrow. Steve challenges Canadians to use the SeaChoice guide to give them the best information available when making their seafood choices, and then walk the talk by buying the right product.
