The Seafood Power 100 list recognises those who have made significant contribution to innovation, sustainability and profitability in our namesake trade.

Libby Woodhatch has been recognised for her work at the Marin Trust, an international certification scheme program for marine ingredients, a “blind spot” in the seafood supply chain. The schemeworks to improve standards in the international fishmeal and oil industry, focusing on the factories bringing the product to market and assessing the fisheries that supply them, certifying 48% of average global production in the last five years.

Simon Dwyer, executive of the Seafood Grimsby and Humber Alliance (SGHA), whom the Company helped to found and is a key working partner in our support for the UK seafood trade, has also been recognised. The SGHA, who’s members make up approximately 60% of the UK seafood processing trade has been instrumental in supporting the industry to navigate the challenges of the pandemic and Brexit and has secured millions of pounds in government funding to support training and careers in the sector as well as driving sustainability and innovation.
