Tassal number one globally

Tasmanian salmon farmer Tassal Group Ltd (ASX: TGR) has been named as the world’s top seafood company in an international report that benchmarks the world’s top 100 companies for sustainability reporting and transparency. Tassal achieved a Corporate, Social and Environmental Responsibility rating of excellent – only one of four companies in the top 100 to achieve this level.

This report, The Seafood Intelligence Report, says, “It would be a good idea for those who ‘care’ to have a careful look at these top four firm’s sustainability reporting and policies in an attempt to emulate their excellence.

Tassal is our second largest equity investment. They recently vertically expanded their operations through the purchase of retailer De Costa Seafood.
