Water Recycling

Water is one of our most precious resources on this planet. Tonnino's water treatment plant helps move toward sustainable water usage throughout its operations. The plant filters, processes and purifies up to 98% of the water used for reuse in irrigating fields, but also in the production and saving of energy resources.

Blue Flag Award

Tonnino has a commitment to continually improve their environmental track record, as proven by being awarded the Ecological Blue Flag in four consecutive years. The Blue Flag program recognises and encourages good environmental practices of consumption indicators: electricity, fuel, water, paper, refrigerants, waste management, staff training and community outreach activities.

“Active participation in IPNLF is complimentary to the core principles of Alimentos Pro Salud and our Tonnino brand of gourmet shelf stable seafood. Respect for our employees, our communities and shared ocean resources are fundamental values we use to guide our efforts.”

The Maldives pole-and-line fishery contributes significantly to the country's economy and also to the local, Maldivian people. Yellowfin and skipjack tuna are one of the only protein sources available to this community, so they rely heavily on the fishery.

Company Policies and Reports

Tonnino developed a pole-and-line product offering exclusively for Whole Foods and they have been on their shelves since January 2018. Pole-and-line fishing uses one pole, one line, and one fish at a time, ensuring the lowest rate of bycatch, overfishing, and lost gear. This technique protects the oceans and is the most sustainable form of fishing.

Parent company Alimentos Prosalud was founded in 1973. With social responsibility as one of Alimentos Prosalud’s core values, their actions are aimed at contributing to the social, environmental and education field of their collaborators and the community.
