Young's boosts ‘responsibility’ team


YOUNG’S Seafood has strengthened its corporate social responsibility team with the appointment of a leading marine biologist.
He is Cameron Moffat (pictured), who is joining Young’s from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). He was previously a project support officer with the MSC and has taken on a significant role, designed to drive forward the company’s responsible seafood strategy which has been running for several years.
On joining the UK’s top selling seafood business, Moffat will play a key part in overseeing the environmental effects of the seafood supply chain.
He plans to work closely with the leadership team and he will also have a broad range of responsibilities dedicated to driving sustainability in the business.
Grimsby based Young\’s said Moffat will be promoting and developing sustainable fisheries and farms for new species.
He brings an array of experience in marine conservation. This includes managing a grant fund for developing world, small-scale fisheries to carry out improvement projects, as well as assisting in the development of seaweed standard materials.
He said this week: ‘Young’s is already at the front of sustainable practices and fish welfare; it’s an impressive, forward thinking business with an exciting future.
‘There is a huge opportunity to grow the company’s sustainable practices even further, and as the market changes and more environmental issues arise, we need to lead that change by ensuring we have the right practices in place.’
