Respect of fishing seasons
At Connétable, we believe that respecting fishing seasons is the key to guaranteeing the quality of our fish. We therefore choose to fish during the peak season, taking into account the various fishing areas and species. As a result, we ensure our fish have just the right amount of fat to allow our customers to benefit from the tastiest and most tender meat.
Preferred fishing areas
We choose fishing areas in accordance with their supply of fish and their overall impact on the environment. When doing so, we take into account the data and expertise of NGOs and recognized international organizations such as the MSC (Marine Stewardship Council), the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature), Greenpeace, the WWF (World Wildlife Fund), and the Seafood Choices Alliance.
Each season, we use the information from these sources to fine-tune our purchases of fish.
Did you know?
Our albacore tuna comes from the northeastern Atlantic Ocean and northeastern Pacific Ocean. We do not source from the western Atlantic Ocean.
Commitment to Quality
Good products start with good fish. Connétable carefully selects its raw materials in accordance with specific criteria for each species, all the while respecting the fundamental principles of responsible fishing.
In order to provide you with the best possible products, we rigorously check the quality of our fish, taking into account its taste, flavor, fat content, and freshness.
We also make sure the cold chain has been respected.
In addition, tests are conducted upstream with suppliers to ensure only those are selected who meet our strict quality criteria.
Our supply managers focus on our preferred fishing areas, and avoid suppliers who source from less desirable areas to guarantee that all safety and compliance-related requirements are met.
Did you know?
Once we receive our fish, we always check its texture, freshness, and appearance. We also make sure the cold chain has been respected.
Consideration for women and men
Connétable is committed to ensuring that the working conditions of its employees and partners are safe. We therefore comply with the international labor standards of the ILO (International Labour Organization), whose mission is to establish fundamental rights and principles in the workplace.
Did you know?
We only work with suppliers and fisheries that comply with the guidelines of the ILO.
If a supplier is based in a country that has yet to ratify the convention, we only work with them if they agree to a contract “recognizing decent work as a fundamental and essential pillar of the commercial partnership.”
Commitment to transparency
We provide detailed information on fishing areas as well as things like our packaging so you can make the best choices as a consumer. With our Red Label products, you can even find the name of the fishing boat. Whenever possible, we purchase our fish from suppliers directly.
A matter of trust
Thanks to the “traceability” marker on our cans of tuna, you can discover the type of tuna, the fishing area and method, the name of the boat, and the production location. Simply visit our “Traceability” page to obtain this information.
