Giving Back School for Girls – Bnos Menachem, Brooklyn, NY

Seafood Imports actively contributes to their community, most notably the Bnos Menachem School For Girls. This is a community outreach program, giving back a small portion of our Kosher sale proceeds to a Jewish school for girls in the local community.

Our company is guided by the core company values of customer success, integrity, innovation and teamwork. To live up to these values, it is essential that we do all that we can to support the health of the oceans that we have long been sourcing from.

Company Policies and Reports

JAVA® Team, is deeply committed to the development of sustainable fishing communities, both in sustainability and social responsibility. We ensure that our products are caught in a sustainable manner that is consistent with the maintenance of healthy ocean and aquatic ecosystems. We are continuing in our best efforts to be closer to the goal of 100% of our tuna fish imports being responsibly sourced.

Fisheries Improvement Toolbox (FIT) Engagement

We know that fishers and fishing in Indonesia is the fabric of the culture and food. Being an Island nation, the oceans are of most importance to many in those remote communities. We, as a company, want to insure that these villages and people are preserving their heritage and livelyhood for future generations. IPNLF policies and procedures assist in this process by working with local communities and government agencies to ensure this can be done.
