Tassal Salmon Rashers 200g (002)Tasmanian salmon company Tassal has been named the world’s best seafood company in the 2015 international Seafood Intelligence report on sustainability and transparency practices.


Tassal was the only Australian company that made the list and its corporate, social and environmental practices have been classified as “excellent”, a classification only three other companies achieved.


The report is issued annually through SeafoodIntelligence.com. The website is a subscriber-based independent international economic market intelligence news service & information portal for the global seafood sector. Its research covers fisheries and agriculture, seafood retail chains, and has a strong focus on issues pertaining to salmon farming.


Other side of Tassal


Aside from its world number one credentials in fishing sustainability, Tassal is regarded by many in the food industry as one of Australia’s innovative food companies.


A good example of its consumer driven approach to innovation is the recent launch of its ‘salmon rashers’ which were developed to compete against bacon rashers and other higher priced meat products.


The company has also started selling ready-to-eat meals which mix salmon with ingredients such as rice, quinoa and beans.
