On the Podium

Tri Marine is one of the three largest global tuna traders handling about 500,000 metric tonnes of tuna annually, representing roughly 10% of the global tuna catch. This makes its responsibility of pursuing best practices of paramount importance.

Bolton Group

In 2018, Tri Marine was fully acquired by Italy's Bolton Group - a privately-owned, large fast-moving consumer goods company specialising in food, household and laundry care, personal care and well being, beauty care and adhesives products. Bolton's leading tuna brand, Rio Mare, is sold in over 30 countries globally. Pole-and-line and handline tuna sourced from the Solomon Islands and Indonesia are used in some of Rio Mare's tuna product range.

Community based

Tri Marine is committed to helping ensure the benefits of fisheries are captured not just by distant markets, but also by those closest to the resources. Tri Marine has invested in fishing and processing bases that provide important socio-economic benefits to coastal communities and Pacific island countries. Best-in-class employment practices are in place, ensuring staff have wages and benefits that help their families and community maintain a healthy standard of living. This has a downstream positive impact of supporting local businesses, as well as regional and international commerce.

All-rounders

Tri Marine is involved in all parts of the supply chain. Their activities include fishing, trading, processing and marketing with offices and operations in strategic locations around the world. With a presence in all major tuna producing areas, they can provide a flexible and strategic supply solution for their customers.

Tri Marine’s mission to provide sustainable, high-quality products to tuna markets around the world aligns well with IPNLF’s work in supporting one-by-one tuna fisheries. We’re proud to be their partner in efforts to support a sustainable tuna industry.
