Friend of the Sea is a project by the World Sustainability Organization, which has become the leading certification standard for products and services that respect and protect the marine environment.
In this sense, Dolphin Safe certification establishes precise control criteria within a global standard to stop the hunting and killing of dolphins and manage the use of nets (purse seine nets).
In general, the company adds a close relationship with the region to the concept of social sustainability. Our employees have a series of benefits to support their personal growth and their families. One example is help with schooling. The development of a State is based on literacy and schooling for new generations. Our solid support every year for the schooling of our employees’ children is a real sign of our close relationship with the people of the Ivory Coast, who have welcomed us as a company since 1994.
